Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

Sweet Nikita

I always loved this sweet face. I suspect he was sedated and struggling to get his eyes open all the way.
Sweet little Nikita had a family on the way to adopt him, but he died a couple of days ago. Leukemia. Cancer sucks. The fact that he had no mommy and daddy sucks. The whole situation sucks. Please think of and pray for his heartbroken family who were working so hard to reach him.
When I say that we reached Theo just in time, that's exactly what I mean. There are orphans all over the world. There is suffering everywhere. But the brutality and inhumane treatment of disabled babies and children in Eastern Europe is particularly disturbing. It's a real crisis.
Things are getting better. Things are changing. The testimony of the parents who adopt these rejected and unwanted children is being noticed. Just not in time for Nikita.
Please, sweet Jesus...when will you make things right? Will you please send a family for Andrey...and Maxim...and Mila...and Pauline...and Eddie...and you get the picture? Will you send champions to defend these children and keep them from harm?
