Pray for our sweet Andrey, I know his heart must be heavy today.
I had mentioned previously that a family had come for Andrey!! They had committed to him, sent him gifts....and then upon receiving his full medicals they, for unknown reasons, changed their minds about him and chose another child. So without getting into much detail he is available again. I know he must be wondering why this family changed their minds about him; he was so close to having a forever family....
Well my sweet boy....
You still are!!!
We are coming for you! We are praying for you! And we love you without question....sight unseen you are our child! We don't care what your medical records say...we will help you, love you, comfort you and get you whatever medical treatment is necessary. Your sisters are anxious to meet you and they love you too...no matter what. A mothers love is whole...no matter how many times it's divided!
There is also another situation that is looming over our adoption....
Andrey is 5 years old and is currently residing in what they call a "baby house". He has already been there longer than most due to his special needs, however, we have been informed that due to the orphanage down sizing Andrey is on the list to be moved to an institution come mid-Jan of 2013 UNLESS he has a committed family choose him (in which case he will be allowed to stay until we come for him).
I don't understand their reasoning for wanting to move him, however, it makes the situation all the more urgent. Our son cannot be moved to an institution...he will likely be confined to the same room/bed 24/7, food intake cut in half, and any hope of affection from his caregivers will likely cease. These are just the facts of being institutionalized. There are too many children and not enough caregivers to give them what they need and deserve. Often children who are institutionalized are not put on a list to be adopted and they can often become difficult to track down...if you can find them at all.
I did not want this blog to be about fundraising; but for this situation I am going to post our donation page for any of you who may feel it in your heart to give. We need $2,500 by the end of December to officially commit to him and keep him out of an institution. But we ask above ALL else that you please pray for him...we know prayers are far more powerful than any amount of $, God willing we can make this happen.
