Monday Miracle: Sergey

Hello again! I hope everyone has had a happy Memorial Day weekend. As is usual for us, my family again attended the Indianapolis 500 this weekend. Our favorite Scot, Dario Franchitti, won the race! We had a great time, but as we were getting together with extended family, my thoughts were never far from the world's orphans, for whom holidays do not bring happy visits with families. I kept envisioning the sweet faces of the boys I have seen during my advocacy work among the crowd at the racetrack, lit up with the excitement of the day. How much better to be with family than sitting in an orphanage or mental institution ...

Today I am bringing you to Sergey. Sergey was born in 1996 and lives in a children's home (orphanage) in Eastern Europe. Sergey is described as the "golden voice of the orphanage school," having won awards in several singing contests. Sergey enjoys traveling and gardening. He is in 8th grade and is considered to be a responsible, polite, and hardworking student. He enjoys helping the elderly people who live near the orphanage with their gardens. Sergey is considered a very trustworthy boy. Sergey has said he would like to live in a family.

Unfortunately for Sergey, he (like Chad) is close to aging out of the system. If this happens to Sergey, he will be alone. On his own. No family to visit on holidays. No family to celebrate with. No family to provide him the support and comfort we all need. Sergey is another boy who needs your help.

Please share Sergey's information far and wide! Please consider whether Sergey has a place in your own family. If you are interested in corresponding with Sergey, that can be arranged. You can send him letters or care packages via post, or you can even email him!

Sergey with his friend. Please keep Sergey 
in your thoughts and prayers!
