still waiting...

Valentin is home forever! 

But Kirill is still waiting. 

(Kirill has cerebral palsy--like Valentin.  He is in an institution--like Valentin would have been.  The picture doesn't show the smile that lights up a room.  Kirill needs a mom and dad.)


Callum is waiting. 

(Look at those glasses--pretty irresistible!  Callum is seven.  He was born prematurely and has many developmental delays.  But he likes to build and construct things, and do puzzles.  Callum needs a mama.)


Irina is waiting. 

(Big dark eyes!  Irina is seven.  She has a cleft palate and is cognitively delayed, but she's a lively little girl.)


Edward is waiting.

(Look at that expression!  You can tell this one is full of fun.  Edward is seven.  He is small for his age, and has developmental delays, but he's making lots of progress!  Edward needs a mama to smile back into those sparkling eyes.)

Kristopher is waiting. 

(Kristopher has cerebral palsy--like Valentin--but see how his spirit shines!  His smile would light up your day.  And who knows what progress he can make, with the love of his parents and family to help him?

Sawyer is waiting.

(Sawyer turns five this month!  He should be getting ready for kindergarten...He needs a mama to look into his blue eyes and say, "You're mine.")

Valentin is home. 

They all need to come home too.

 Like a dream ...

 But then you awaken and find that it's true!!

Valentin is home forever

(Look at that smile and the peace in his eyes!  And see how he's sitting up, on the carpet!)

My heart rejoices...

...because he is going home.

Valentin is going HOME!!!


Praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute...  Ps 150:4
