As I said in yesterday’s video, for the next few days we will be highlighting certain resources that the Holy Spirit used, in conjunction with Scripture, to propel us to adopt Peter and Rebecca.
We originally came across this documentary when we were considering adopting a young boy named Whittaker, from the Ukraine. His story was actually the one that God used to burst open the doors of our hearts to the abandoned and helpless.
Whittaker had cerebral palsy and was only four years old; he looked a lot like our son, William, who is also four. Whittaker was left in a bed all day and his muscles had completely atrophied. We had also learned that he was about to be transferred from his orphanage if not adopted soon. Why, you ask? Because in the Ukraine and Bulgaria, children like Whittaker only have until they are four years old to get adopted from their orphanage before they are transferred.
Now, you can adopt from the mental institutions, but it not as easy- to say the least- because sadly, there are so many kids that those who don't get adopted are simply seen as lost and ultimately forgotten. Additionally, if you watch today’s documentary, you will see that these mental institutions are essentially Hell on earth. There are just too many kids and not enough people who care, Christian or not.
Thankfully, when we inquired about Whittaker, we learned that another family had already started the process of adopting him. In the end, God used this to lead us to Peter and Rebecca.
If you feel compelled, please support our adoption by purchasing a shirt at www.christianwarriorwear.com or give on our YouCaring page: http://www.youcaring.com/adoption-fundraiser/help-us-adopt-a-teenage-boy-and-a-girl-with-cerebral-palsy/278760.
The only help for orphans like Peter and Rebecca is found in God Almighty as He moves sovereignly, and as He leads though the acts of his Saints, God’s elect. To God be the glory alone!
