Friends since childhood and God`s grace

Last week we could visit girls with special needs. We had a wonderful time with them!
We spoke about Heavenly food, how God cared and sent a food to Israelites in wilderness.(Exodus 16)

During the Bible lesson we gave girls honey with  flavorless cookies.
(Exodus16:31)"And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it [was] like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it [was] like wafers [made] with honey". They were glad!

As Manna was white. Girls played a game.Who the first and more will pick up manna blindfolded.It was lots of fun! Many wanted to play!

So grateful for the help...

At the end we made a craft with a Bible verse. Everyone enjoyed and it was nice time.

But most precious and sweet time was when Stella with her darling son could visit her friends since childhood...Yes, most of these young ladies were together with Stella at one orphanage many years.But then they were transferred to another orphanage, where they will be till 35 years old. After they will be transferred to a psychiatric institution for adults, where they will spend the rest of their life...It`s so sad.

These beautiful young ladies never will have a future, never will get marriage, never will get an education, never will work where they would like, never go to a store to buy what they would like, never go to any park, zoo, lake, their dreams never  become real and so on and so on...Here can be many "never"...

It was so lovely, when Stella showed them how to change a diaper for a baby.

Oh, yes, they never saw it... It was their first sight and experience.They watch with such interest. Where they could see the baby?

These beautiful souls with a great interest watched how a young mom dressed her adorable son.

Honestly. We were shocked, when Stella said, years ago I could be at this place too. I just strived and battled for myself. I knew how bad to be there...I proved that I can stand up for myself and can live independently.

Oh, my!How horrible! Can you imagine this lovely young lady being there? Can you imagine how many beautiful and precious moments of life she could lose? Hear the first cry of her sweet just born son, enjoying his first tooth, dandle and loving him, have a loving and caring husband, feel loved, walk on streets with her family, enjoying a friendship with Christian friends, having a fellowship and spend time in McDonalds with dear friends...

...just a simple thing, skype with a lovely friends over ocean every week. And so on and so on and so on...

When I think about this beautiful girl what could happened with her, how she would feel lonely, unwished, neglected.., I am AMAZED by great God`s grace and love... HOW good, mercy and astonishing love of Heavenly Father to this precious soul!

Can you imagine Stella in this orphanage and then to be transferred to psychiatric institution for adults?..

How sad and disappointed about these beautiful young ladies, who, some of them may live independently but never will have this chance...

(Hebrews12:28)" Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear". 


  1. Alla,
    Thanks for sharing. Oh how I wish they would have the chance to experience life outside of those walls. Thank you for taking Jesus to them. What is the age range of these girls? Are they still adoptable?

    1. Thanks, Tina. I do not know the age of the oldest girls. The smallest one is 4 years old.Older girls cannot be adopted.Older and small girls live partly separate.Some small girls can be adopted but director does not give permit :(

    These beautiful young ladies remind me of my own young cousins, whose lives might be similar now if they had not joined our family eight years ago.

    Thank you for brightening the lives of these girls - would it be possible to take them for little "outings" (park, McDonald's, zoo) from time to time (just a few girls each time)? Their "special needs" appear to be slight, from these pictures and your post.

    Perhaps things will change for such young people in the future, when peace and justice return to Ukraine. I pray that comes to pass.

    I have a LOT of turtleneck tops for young ladies which I will be sending soon - perhaps these girls could use them!

    Thanks for all you do..

    1. Dear Susan, it`s our DREAM take them to McDonald`s, zoo, etc! We pray it would happen someday.
      We tried once take some girls to McDonald's.But the director had to do a lot of work with a permition of many services. A lot of paperwork and stuff. That to rent a bus. We were ready to pay. They needed only find a bus to rent. The orphanage does not have own transport. We thought take 15-20 girls. I do not remember exactly.
      The only option is that we would rent a bus. Go there, pick up girls, then take them and return back. It will be very expensive. Therefore, it remains our dream...
      But if we would take a few girls from time to time? Hmm. Do not know. We should ask director again.

      Thanks a lot for your support!
