Isn’t she darling with her long ponytails? Little Vika is growing into such a beautiful young girl, still feisty and full of spunk.
And doesn’t she have just the best laugh?
Vika’s speech has improved since the last time I saw her and, as you can see in the video above,
she is even beginning to recite little songs and poems.
May I remind you however that Vika has only two years left in the orphanage for preschool-aged children; a place where she is loved and cared for and given the opportunity to learn. Once she turns eight-years-old, Vika will be transferred to an institution. Vika may be blind and developmentally delayed but she still has so much potential. A potential that, unfortunately, those in her country do not see. Just today Natalie was talking to Vika’s caregivers about the possibility of her being adopted and their response was, “But who would want her?”. Given the society they live in, they just cannot comprehend why someone would cross the oceans to bring a child like Vika home. But I get it and I think a lot of you do too. Will you help me prove to Victoria and her workers that she is a beautiful treasure of immeasurable worth by sharing her story, donating to her grant fund and praying for a family who will gladly cross the oceans for her?
