Change will come from reaching out, in real terms, to the children who are suffering the most, and providing them with the essential life-tools, guidance, and love to help themselves. There are indeed children who rise above the parapet and change their lives. And it is those who will become the leaders of the future. Whether you’re a multi-national company looking for a social responsibility theme for your employees, or an individual who wishes to leave a legacy that is reflective of your life, you will find Moldovans and Romanians to be kind, dedicated and hard-working.
For many, the natural instinct of wanting to adopt internationally has its own well-documented trail of sadness and disappointment. And the fact there are a few individuals and organisations who mask themselves as "Christian" programmes, who are making untold sums of money from this form of exploitation, is particularly repugnant. It is our belief that whenever possible it is better to first work towards finding ways that the child may be reintegrated into their own core family. Alternatively, the extended family may be considered, and finally, when other options are not available, then fostering and adoption within their own country would be the first preference over international adoption.
During these rapidly developing times, these children will become the leaders and models of change in their society. To take away the strongest to a foreign land only helps to perpetuate the problem. And the adage: "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" bears thought.
Every business has a corporate responsibility, every group has a social responsibility, and each of us has a spiritual responsibility!
This site was not created to raise money, it is not to admonish or embarrass anyone, any culture, or any country. It is merely to invoke thought.
Hopefully, we have succeeded.
