It is 4:59 a.m. and I have been awake for hours, with this little one on my heart..
Because things are moving and I had a little email come to me last night...
...and I cannot give details, because it is too soon.
But if you are praying...
It's almost morning here in Oregon. The sky is still black and my little ones are all sleeping.
And my heart is so heavy for Olga...because it is almost morning for her as well. Almost the start of a "new day."
She turns five this month. If you haven't been following my blog...this means that very soon she will be transferred to a mental institution. Leave the only home she's ever known- even if it is an orphanage with no Mommy and Daddy to tuck her in at night- and be sent to a place of unspeakable horrors.
Right now, things are moving in the right direction. Right now there is a family with Olga on their hearts. Right now, questions are being asked, inquiries made...and I can't say more, but I am shamelessly asking you to to pray like you've never prayed before for Olga and for her family and for God's will to be done here.
It's almost morning for Olga.
And what will that new day bring?
A home? Safety? Peace? A loving family to protect her and love her and cherish her, and show her the value that her little life truly is? A mama to kiss her and hold her and teach her all the little things a little girl should know...most of all love? A daddy to watch over her and care for her? Parents to hold her when she's hurting and pray for her and show her tenderness and give her everything a little girl deserves?
Of all the things that Olga is missing right now- the basic necessities of life that we so take for granted every day- the thing that breaks my heart the most- is the love of a family. I cannot imagine my Lily being raised in a place where the only "family" she knew was other discarded children, and people paid to take care of her.
As my husband and I were going to sleep last night, Lily was drifting off to sleep between us..she was nuzzled up against me, and my husband leaned over and kissed her cheek..and without turning around, she held her tiny arm up in the air behind her head, to touch his face. She does that every night- reaches out for her Daddy, even when she can't see him. She knows he's there.
It breaks my heart that Olga doesn't have that. Kareen doesn't have that.
It's almost morning for them.
And what will their new day bring?
Please pray- God is moving hearts.
Your prayers are being heard, and God is doing an awesome thing.
Please pray that the things that need to happen for Olga's family to claim her will move quickly.
If you're not familiar with the "process" of committing to a child at Reece's Rainbow, let me just say that it isn't simply a family stating their intention to adopt. A homestudy needs to take place, and other requirements met and paperwork submitted, etc. So if I am cryptic when I post updates on the girls, that is why. It is a process, not an instant event, and we need God involved in the process.
So I am once again, asking for prayer for this process...and that things go smoothly for whoever her family is...so that she can be rescued quickly.
Because it's almost morning.
