Andrei was abandoned at birth (his mother left the country and his father is deceased), he was sent in a state-run infant orphanage where he remained until the age of two. One of the workers there decided to foster him; she left her job at the infant orphanage and became a foster parent, not only to Andrei Narcis, but also to other orphan children (including Raul O. who is now part of our family as well and will be featured in our December newsletter), filling her house with little ones and eliminating the void in their hearts and lives, with genuine love and affection.
For 12 years, he was offered an environment where he could grow up harmoniously and he slowly overcame the challenges of coping without his parents. The foster family selflessly sowed into him, while carefully monitoring his health (he suffers from persistent bronchial asthma).
His foster "mother" has turned 60 and Romanian laws prohibit anyone over 60 from providing foster care for children. Believing that her children should not be affected yet again by such dramatic changes in their lives and wanting to prevent them being left alone again, she asked us to take Andrei Narcis into our family, knowing the love and care that we would offer him.
Two weeks after his arrival at Hand of Help, Andrei was already feeling at home at our orphanage. He was thrilled to meet new friends and enjoyed the company of so many other “brothers” and “sisters” who met him with the same love and affection that they were once welcomed with.
In the fall of 2017, Andrei started high school – majoring in electronics. Please keep Andrei Narcis in your prayers as we work together to prepare him for independent life.
We ask our Lord to speak to Andrei Narcis and reveal Himself to him, leading him to becoming an obedient servant of His Kingdom. We would not be able to do this work without your selfsame sacrifice and we thank you for giving our children a chance to not be lost forever.
Thank you for joining us in this labor and may God abundantly bless your efforts.
