Finding Hope Ministries is a non-denominational Christian mission dedicated to helping the disenfranchised of Romanian society (especially children) achieve spiritual, physical and economic well-being.
The greatest evil is not hate but indifference: Hate kills and maims thousands; indifference kills and maims millions. Moreover, every act of kindness towards fellow man ripples endlessly.
Therefore as God’s people, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience (Col. 3:12).

I was abandoned by my mother as a baby because I was born with congenital hydrocephalus – a condition in which an abnormal accumulation of brain fluid fills the cranial cavity causing the head to progressively enlarge. Though, my condition was eventually treated and my head decreased to normal size, I had a complication which left me paralyzed from my waist down. Currently, I am 16 years old, wheelchair bound, and live in a state-run orphanage, where I have been living all my life. I have always dreamed of having a family to adopt and love me. Since, I am an older orphan I losing hope that this will happen!
I was rejected by my mother and father and left in the hospital when I was born. I was taken orphanage where I have resided ever since. I do not know what it means to have a father and mother, but I would really like to have one someday. I am 15 years and would really like to have a family of my own one day. The orphanage life is all right, since it is all I know, but no one really loves me here like a mom and dad would! If I died now, probably no one would even care much! I hope that one day I can do something with my life, but it is hard for an orphan in Romania!
Even though I was abandoned by my mother and father and put in an orphanage, I was happy because I no longer had to endure their violent beatings and the harsh conditions of living on the streets! At least the orphanage had a warm bed, no brutal beatings, food to eat, and a bed to sleep on!
It is hard to be an orphan, especially since I have cerebral palsy. It is hard for me to talk and walk. People always have to take care of me because if my disabilities. I wish I had mother and father to take care of me instead of the orphanage teachers! But, I know God will take care of me!
