In my work with Little Flowers Foundation over the past eight years, I have been involved with a number of adoptions from Russia. One thing I can tell you for sure: the life of an unadopted orphan after they leave an orphanage is very rough in Russia. They are basically left out on the street with no support system and no money. Many of the girls end up as prostitutes and the boys end up in a life of crime. Adopting them before they get to that point is often the only chance these children will ever have at a normal life.
Pray for this situation and for all the children in Russia who need a family. Also, if you are so inclined and able, please consider a donation to Little Flowers Foundation and we will use it to help Catholic families bring these type of children into their homes.
