Larisa T. used to live in Constanta, a city in the southeastern part of Romania, together with her parents and 3 siblings. Her father worked as a police officer, but had an alcohol addiction. Following an altercation, the authorities found him guilty and sent him to prison for three years. Shortly after his release, his wife was diagnosed with pulmonary cancer and died in 2007.
All four children were sent to a child protection center in Constanta, while the father moved to Botosani, where his relatives were at that time living. Years have gone by and two of Larisa's siblings have married, while her other sister decided to move closer to their father and start work.
Larisa was the only one left in Constanta and asked the authorities to make a way for her to move to Botosani, closer to her remaining family. The father has no material or financial means and cannot support Larisa through her final years in school. We were asked to step in and receive Larisa in our family. We are her only hope of being able to finish school and start an independent life, as well as provide her with the medical attention she needs.
Larisa has started high school in Botosani, majoring in textile design. Please join us in praying for Larisa as she starts her new life in Botosani and faces all the changes of this move. We have a short time in which we can sow into her life and we ask God to give us the wisdom, to guide her steps towards Him, and decisively impact her life.
