If you've been following our blog since we were in Ukraine, you may remember my post about a little boy named "Matthew." That's not his real name, but the name I have given him - a name which means "Gift from God." You can read that post here.
Last week, I shared that a situation was weighing heavily on my heart. Well... it's Matthew. We found out that he is now available for international adoption. Matthew is four years old. If he does not find a family before he turns five, he will be transferred to an institution. One where he receives food, shelter, and his basic needs are met. That's all. No toys, no stimulation, no education. He may be housed with men up to 35 years of age. Once Matthew is transferred, the chances of his adoption become very slim.
This little boy needs his family to step forward and step forward SOON! Would you take a moment and lift Matthew up in prayer? Is God calling you to be his forever family? If you feel that perhaps Matthew is meant to be your son, please leave a comment on our blog with your email address or you can email me privately. I will get in touch with you and help you connect with someone who can get the process started. If nothing else, please pray for this precious treasure, beautiful child of God. Pray that he will soon be united with his forever family and know what it's like to be loved and cherished.
