In September: Smilovichi orphanage: “The History of Julia and Sergey”

Posted: September 24, 2012 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

I am very thankful to God that the next school year began. For children, it is not always an enjoyable time, but we all know and understand that the welfare of their lives depends on their learning and the level of knowledge. And for our team it is the next challenge!
Our dreams come true when the dreams of the children we serve come true. You might think that the dreams of children from orphanages often based on material needs. But this is false. Many of them have dreams that are hidden deep in the heart, to find themselves in this life, to be important for someone, to have a family. That’s why we dream and do everything possible to make their dreams come true. That they recognize the value and uniqueness of their personality, they saw the beauty of life and make the right decisions on their not a simple path.
We strive to ensure that children at risk, with whom we communicate, get in the right direction in life.
Throughout the year we attend Smilovichi shelter. There we met with Julia and her brother Sergei. In the winter, they were happy that they soon will be taken to a foster home. This hope they lived! But no one would have thought that five months later, they again fall into the shelter. It seems that all hope is destroyed! Cruel adult world again rejected the “inconvenient” children! But the pain and wounds that we sometimes inflict, left deep scars in the hearts.
During the talk, Julia disclose everything that happened to her and what she felt. Inflicted wounds of the heart are still being felt, because the pain is just in time! Julia and Sergey – children who have been rejected once and again, they again are deceived and disappointed, but – did not break. Yes, these children grow up very quickly and adapt, but inside they have a huge hole, they lack the love of parents, they lack the support of family members.
If you go back to the beginning, you can view the whole tragedy of life of Julia and Sergey. Their mother had cancer patients. She struggled to care for herself, let alone to care for their children, and especially to go to work. The father of these children for many years is unemployed. Besides – alcoholic. Houses were constant scandals and lack of funds. After a while, the children were sent to an orphanage, before the court decision. At the hearing it was finally decided, “termination of parental rights” parents of Sergey and Julia. Children could only wait, what will happen to them next? They face life in a boarding school. But in winter there were people who wanted to take them to the family. At that time we saw them shining with happiness eyes! Then we said goodbye to them in the hope that they have found a new family and be able to live a full life. But a few months later, we met again with them in the shelter. Julia shared with us the fact that life in the new family was very difficult and that a return to the shelter has become their great joy. At present they are again waiting for a new turning point in their lives. Once again, they are waiting for either a new foster family, or distribution of a boarding ...
What can I do to help this children? We overcome our difficulties, so that the children we serve, have learned to overcome their own. We win our fears so that each of them, look to us and have stayed in achieving their dreams. Through our work, we are trying to attract the attention of people around them to the children who are so in need.
We believe that with God the life of each child can be transformed and changed, because it is God who helps to get up, when you just can not do it. God gives hope. He gives faith. He gives belief that another family can be the ones to meet the parents, their dreams, which they prayed!
