Doesn't this sweet girl have the most amazing eyes you have ever seen! I am so blessed to be her prayer warrior. Miss Lyla has had a rough start to this life and is a very sick little girl who also happens to be an orphan. What I want more than anything is to see her home with her family asap! Who would like to help? Head on over to Love Multiplied Giveaway! You have a chance to win many prizes including an iPad3! All to help this little princess get home to the care and love she so desperately needs. You see there is a very special family that went to meet her a few years ago because they loved her and knew that she was ment to be their daughter. They got to hold her and love her but she was so sick and expected to die so was no longer available to adopt.They were terribbly heartbroken to not be able to bring her home but our wonderful Lord had a plan and they met two other sweet blessings that they were able to add to their family. Then the impossible seemed to happen Miss Lyla lived!!! She was made available to be adopted but another family stepped up and committed to her. This family was unable to complete the adoption (prayers for them please I know they are heartbroken) but now Lyla is available again and we are trying so hard to get her home to the mama who was able to hold her and love her so long ago. Please share with your friends and help where you can. You can follow Miss Lyla's adoption story here: Lucky to Love Lyla.

FACING IMMINENT INSTITUTIONALIZATION
Preston is an orphanage favorite! He is 6 now and needs a family of his own. He does have a heart condition, but he is active and doing well despite this. His adenoids and tonsils are enlarged (very common) and should probably be removed.
Preston has $15048.14 available toward the cost of his adoption!
Samuel is the first picture. Duncan is the second.
Duncan and Samuel will be aging out of the system soon in their countries. At age 16 they will no longer be available for adoption. Both these boys are in desperate need of families. The chance that they will enter into a life of crime is very high if they do not have a family come for them.
From a family who met him in Feb 2012: Duncan very much wants a family. He is smart and works hard. He gets along well with others. Duncan struggles with facing the future here in his native country. He knows that unless a miracle happens and he gets adopted (or a family commits and gets USCIS approval) in the next few months, he is going to be sent to a mental institution, even though mentally, he has no issues. Duncan appears to have CP, and he is small for his age (about the size of a 13 year old). Duncan's medical information is en route from the orphanage now, but the family who met him and who he approached to ask for a family and the facilitator want to go ahead and get his information and picture out there. Duncan uses a walker to walk and is independent in mobility. Duncan is a compassionate teen and one who says he "fears even to hope for a family, because he doesn't think anyone would want him because he isn't handsome". In fact, when it was time to pose for this picture, Duncan worried that someone would see it and then not want him. Duncan needs a family to show him God looks on the heart to see beauty (even though he's a quite handsome boy regardless)- and so do Christian families. Duncan's heart is big, and he is well-loved in this orphanage. Many worry for him if he doesn't get adopted before he turns 16 and it is too late. Please, if you are interested, contact RR right away. The family who met him is also very willing to talk to anyone who wants more information.
From a family who met him in Feb 2012: Sam is an AMAZING young man! He is friendly, good-natured, has a good sense of humor, and loves soccer (futbol). He is very good at soccer, and has gone to a camp for great players in Poland a few summers ago. Sam very much wants a family in America- he approached a family adopting there and asked many questions about it, and has talked to the orphanage staff before about how much he wants a family- for parents to love him, encourage him, and support him. Sam's disability is very minor- he has malformed fingers on both hands that appear to be due to banding of some sort. Otherwise, he is healthy. Because of this disability, he was sent to a special needs orphanage. He is very smart, has already started learning English in school at the orphanage and is well-liked by his friends. Sam's faith in God is very important to him and he would like a family who also worships God, who will encourage his gifts in soccer, and who will tell him "I love you" and listen to him as he talks. Sam has goals for the future, and would like to play soccer and go to college, but he knows his life in his home country will not give him those chances. He is very intelligent, very respectful and has a great perspective about adoption, because he has a friend already adopted into the US. The family that met him in February 2012 will be happy to answer questions about him as well. Sam eagerly posed for the pictures, and begged the family and facilitator to please not forget him and to find him a family fast!Dear Lord, please lead both of these boys' families to them. Allow for funds to not be an obstacle to both of these boys having a family. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
