"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Kyrgyz still needs prayers

We may have left the program, but it has not left our hearts. There are 65 families with children waiting for them in Kyrgyzstan, some have just passed or are nearing their 1st birthdays... they should have been home months ago. Some families have been waiting over a year to bring their children home. While the officials are tap dancing around the issue, it seems the only people who are caring about the well being of these children are the ones who are the furthest away.... their families who want them home.

These children, these families... they all need our prayers. Prayers that things will move forward for the matched families, especially the children with medical needs who NEED to be brought home and get the required medical care.

I know these families only through their blogs, or online groups... but their stories touch me right to my core, and I want more than anything to see them coming home with their children. Not only does Kyrgyz have our hearts, but so do these families. Please keep them in your prayers.
