Our twins, Vlad-Nicolae and Petru- Iulian were born on June 30th, 2003. At only 7 months, in 2004, Hand of Help was urgently called to rescue them from their atrocious family environment. Their father committed suicide and their mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia. The twins grew up under our eyes and have become the joy (and energy factor) of the orphanage. They are extremely active, curious and eager to experiment with everything. Our social worker has been like a mother for them. Her dedication and gentleness of character helped them overcome the stigma associated with similar cases. They are currently in the 6th grade. Petru (Petrica as we call him) loves biology and ecology classes. He spends his free time creating new items from recyclables. He has also started playing table tennis and is at an advanced level in painting.
Vlad is also a very good student. He loves taking on new responsibilities and challenging himself. He takes electronics classes in his free time, in preparation for what he will be doing in high school.
They both enjoy biking and soccer and are always participating in various activities at our orphanage and in the church.
Thank you for joining us in praying for our twins. As adolescent boys, the challenges in front of them are numerous but we believe our God will grant us the wisdom to help them become obedient young men, always ready to serve Him and always thankful for the chances they have been given.
