Perhaps you've already heard the story of Kirill...
...it's the story of a family who raised thousands of dollars and crossed an ocean to tell a little boy locked away in a big building that he was worthy of time in the sun.
It's the story of a boy waiting for years to feel the arms of a momma around him and melting into a new warm happy when they finally arrived.
Take a minute and watch the miracle yourself...
It's the story of a family that raised thousands of dollars and crossed an ocean and scooped up an angel and asked to take him home.
It's the story of a family who heard the word NO.
It's the story of a judge who said NO because Kirill had Down syndrome and, therefore, did not deserve his time in the sun.
You can read his whole story here...
Checkbooks can't solve this one.
No fundraisers are applicable here.
In order for Kirill to come home with the family that has taken on the world to hold him in their arms, the judicial decision-makers in Kirill's country must have a dramatic change of heart.
I only know one department to go to with that request.
Please pray for Kirill today...for his safe-keeping and compassionate care as decisions are made on his behalf.
Please pray for the heart of the judge who said NO because Kirill is NOT the only child with Down syndrome being adopted out of the district she resides over.
Pray for continued courage in hearts that are breaking.
Pray for hearts to be employed in making decisions where reason has only been called upon before.
Pray for a break in the dark and for whispers of mercy to illuminate the clear place Kirill holds in the family that has found him.
Please pray for sun.
