(9 yr old boy)
Petru and Petronela Nadia (twins) were born in 2009 to their single mother and an unknown father.
In August 2012, their mother left abroad, leaving the twins in their aunt?s care. Their agreement was that the mother was to financially support the children and permanently keep in touch with them. This very understanding was communicated to the local authorities. However, once departed from Romania, the mother never contacted her children or her sister and never sent money or any other type of help. Her sister, unemployed, living in a modest house consisting of two rooms, without electricity or wood for warming the place, was forced to ask the child protection services for help. Soon afterwards, Hand of Help was contacted and we decided to take the twins into our care. The mother showed no interest whatsoever in keeping her relationship with the twins and agreed to Petru and Petronela becoming a part of our orphanage.
The twins have an 8 year old sister currently living in a different town with a relative who was able to take her into foster care.
Please keep Petru and Petronela in your prayers. They have been faced with a lot of changes during this last year and their hearts have been deeply wounded. As we strive to embrace them with all the affection and the love that we are capable of through the love Christ has shown us, there is much healing that needs to occur in them. Although the medical tests show that they are healthy, they still have to adjust to their new environment, become emotional stable again and get ready to start kindergarten.
They will start a new life at Hand of Help and we are grateful to be able, together with you, to bring hope to the lives of the orphans. Thank you for your faithfulness and for helping us offer a family to those who have no one else in this world to call tata (father) or mama (mother).
