Ionut and his brother, Alex, came to live with us immediately after their mother passed away. Their father was unable to care for his children due to health issues and we welcomed them into our family, rejoicing to see two brothers able to live together. Ionut assumed his position as a big brother from the very beginning, even though he was physically smaller than his younger brother due to growth and developmental issues. Together, they have grown up under our eyes to become young men, ready to embrace independent life.
During the thirteen years that Ionut stayed at Hand of Help, we had the opportunity to sow into him the love of Christ. He decided not to pursue higher education and left the orphanage in search for work, ready to start independent life. He is currently living with his father and works at a nearby store.
We thank you for being close to our children and giving them a chance at a future. It is only by God's grace that we are able to continue this work and we pray that every seed planted brings forth fruit in His time.
