Abandoned Baby Finds a "Forever Family"...

When Jenny and I first began visiting the abandoned babies at the Pediatric Hospital in Ivankiv back in April of 2008, we met a little boy named Nazar. We learned then that Nazar had been abandoned since birth and had spent all of his days living in a crib at the hospital. Over the next year, we got to know Nazar and visited him and the other children regularly.
During the middle of 2009, Nazar and other children were moved to a toddler orphanage in Boyarka, which is located near Kiev. Since then, we have not heard any news about Nazar, until this weekend...
This weekend, I received an email from an adoptive couple who were writing to thank Jeremiah's Hope and our donors for all that we had done to provide for their new son during his first 3 years of life. The couple, residents of Canada, are currently in Ukraine completing their adoption of Nazar! When I read this, my eyes began to water and the tears flowed. Finally!!! Finally, this little boy would have a family and it would happen before he turns 3 next week.
With the parents permission, I have written this brief update and am attaching a few current pictures of Nazar which they have given me permission to post. They also wish to express their gratitude to all those who donated formula, diapers and much more to help us meet the needs of the abandoned babies.
