Bogdan was rescued from abandonment and placed in a wonderful Christian foster family as a toddler. At first, he did well, enjoying his parents and new siblings. But the older he got, the more he began to struggle with behavioral, emotional, and educational problems. Eventually, his foster family realized Bogdan badly needed permanence and a real sense of belonging. They began the process to adopt him—and everything changed. Bogdan is now thriving. He loves the Lord, is looking forward to being baptized, and hopes to become a plumber one day.
“The best moment of my life was on the day I went out with my mom to pick up my new birth certificate,” Bogdan told us. “And she handed me the certificate, and there I saw my new name.”
Bogdan's story shows that abandoned children need so much more than a roof over their heads: they need security and healing.
