Adina S, together with her siblings, were forced to witness the most tragic of their life's events- their mother abandoned the family, leaving the father to take care of them alone. However, after having suffered a stroke and being admitted to the hospital for a prolonged period of time, he was under no circumstance able to provide for his family and take care of their well-being. The doctors were guarded in giving any chance of survival. A relative of the family contacted us upon observing such a situation and asked us to intervene and offer the children a chance of growing up in a safe and proper environment. While the older children were either married or working in different areas, the little ones were on the verge of abandoning school and becoming orphans with no expectation whatsoever of having a normal existence.
We visited the family's house and hastily determined that they needed a helping hand. Iuliana (born in 2004), Adina (born in 2006) and Alexandru (born in 2009) are now integrated in our center. Once arrived at Hand of Help, they were evaluated and housed in one of our orphanage home groups. They are living in the same space and could not be happier that they are together.
The deteriorating health of their father continues to bear a lot of weight on these little shoulders. Their desire is to see him well and able to live life as normal as possible. School was a challenge for them as they had missed their classes for days on end during their family crisis.
Adina is a shy young lady and she will have to face the challenge of being among new classmates and teachers, but she is a very studios girl, always organized in everything she does. She has been able to recuperate a lot of the classes she couldn't attend at home with the help of our teachers and social workers.
Adina finds pleasure in helping around our center and she also loves music. Just recently she has started playing the block flute in our orchestra and we couldn't be more grateful for every step forward she takes.
Please keep Adina in your prayers as she continues the journey toward adulthood. The traumatic events in her life left deep wounds but under our Lord's wings, pain and suffering are given a different meaning. We know that with our Lord’s help she will overcome all obstacles and it is our desire to see her grow in Him and understand the importance of knowing her Savior and King.
