The Promise

I thought I would share a fascinating look into what a Baby Home or Baby Orphanage looks like in Eastern Europe.  A Baby Home is typically for orphans ages 0-4 years old.  Sometime after a child turns 4 years old, they are transferred into an orphanage for older children or to a mental institution.  Our little guy is probably in a similiar facility right now.  We ask that you would continue to pray that our paperwork would get approved quickly.  They are 'holding' him for us at the orphanage but we know he will turn 5 in the coming months.  We need to get there as soon as possible.  The thought of him being transferred......well I just can't go there right now.  If the video below gives you problems, here is the link to view The Promise.


  1. Thanks for sharing this video. It is quite an eye opener. Praying that your little fellow can be home soon.

  2. How have I never seen this before? So incredible. I kept thinking "are these babies listed on RR?"

    haha. That little one at the end? Oh man. SO CUTE

  3. This video is very hard to watch but it brings so much hope. Thank you for sharing and I am so happy that Joshua is doing so well. I love looking at your family pictures, it just brings a smile to my face!!!

  4. Thank you for sharing this video. It is heart-wrenching, but we all need to see it. We can't be ignorant of these beautiful lost children.
