Would You Pray?

Many of you may know....many of you may not. If you don't, you need to.


Just a name for those of you who don't recognize it. But it's a name of a sweet boy in Eastern Europe whose very life is hanging in the balance as I write this. Kirl needs to go home. He has a family that loves him and wants to adopt him more than life itself. Last week, a judge decided that since Kiril was a little boy with Down's Syndrome, he would be better off in an institution than with a family.

This should anger you.....and make you pound your fist on your chest in disbelief. But what you need to do is pray because, ultimately, anger is less effective than prayer.

Below is the link to Kiril's story:

Here is the link to see the first time Kiril met his adoptive Mama:

This is an urgent request but not the only one. There are two other adoptive families seeking precious Down's Syndrome children that will come before this very judge to hear whether they get to bring home these children as oppose to having them waste away in a mental institution.

This is so real. Pray hard.

  1. Oh, this is simply heartbreaking :(
    I can't believe Russian law. Or that judge. I just can't believe the unfairness and cruelty of it all. I will be praying for this little boy...and I'll be praying for the judge who sees the appeal.
