Svetlana has been featured as our waiting child in the past, however we are featuring her again. She is about to age out of the system in a matter of weeks her chances of finding her forever family will be gone. So we are sharing her story again, and ask you do the same. Please pray for this precious one, pray she finds a family, pray she feels the comfort of Jesus, pray for a family to open their hearts. PRAY. We want her to feel the power of prayer, we want her to feel valued, because she is. Thank you friends.

They are happy to hear sounds even if they are muffled voices passing down the hall. They are thankful for days when the have more to eat than just mashed up food coming from a bottle. This is the life these kids live each and every day.
