Oh, my heart.
I have failed her. She's the one.
She is the one child for whom I was bent on finding a home. I was certain that someone would be touched by our story and be inspired to rescue her.
Like Theo was rescued.
There is still a chance for Masha.
And Tori is the key.
Tori, soon to be renamed Reagan, was transferred about a year and a half ago to the same institution that Masha will soon call home.
This coming Monday morning in Eastern Europe there will be a meeting. A very important meeting. An American couple wishes to adopt Tori and has received her referral. They will show up at Tori's institution and meet with the director.
Now, I have heard conflicting reports about this director. Some say the director is difficult and some say the director is agreeable. Some say the director is opposed to adoptions. This director has the power to say "yes" or "no."
We must pray for this director. For a soft heart, for a willing spirit. For Tori is the key. If she can be rescued then there is still a chance...
So please pray now. Let us storm heaven for the sake of the inmates (yes, this is what they are called) of Tori's institution.
If you wish to pray during the actual meeting, set your alarms...Monday morning. Early. 1 a.m. - 3 a.m. Central Time, USA, I'm guessing.
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes. ~David Platt, Radical
