MIRACLES DO COME TRUE!!!!

January 19, 2010

A few months ago, I shared pictures and the story of 2 1/2 year old Norbert, and the fact that he couldn’t walk.  I told you all that he was diagnosed with rickets, due to his poor diet.  The outlook was very grim, as his case was severe.  But……thanks to your generous donations, he now has a healthier diet than he previously had.  They still don’t eat regularly, because the money just isn’t there for Ramona to buy many groceries.  Our funds are not great enough to provide more than a few meals a month, beause we help other families too.  However, the families that we help get vegetables, fruits, cereal and some meat.

 The doctor gave him vitamins.  It’s been months, but NORBERT IS WALKING!!!  He must hold his mother’s hand, but he can walk and he can go outside with his brother and sisters!    The poor boy must have been in pain too, because he never smiled.  I hear he is smiling all the time now.  I am sooooooo happy.  I will have pictures to share with you soon.

Husband Abandons Family

October 16, 2009

We have an immediate need to get food to a family that we have not helped before.  The husband/father left his wife and two young children and moved to Germany.  The man left his family with NO food and NO money.  We don’t believe he will return.  There is no work in the village, so there is no way for this woman to feed her family.

Please, if you can spare a few dollars, please make a donation through paypal to flore_tn@yahoo.com.  We will deliver groceries as soon as possible.

Thank you!!

SO SAD :(

October 15, 2009

I learned that little Norbert still isn’t walking.  He is now 2 years and 5 months old.  Ramona and Cassian of course can’t afford to take him to a doctor.  My husband and I sent them $100 because we were very concerned about this darling little boy.  Ramona immediately took him to a doctor.  In the photos, you will see how happy and hopeful she was.

Poor Norbert is having blood drawn.  They had to stick him three times before they found the vein :(

The blood work came back from the lab and it is very bad.  Every single thing they tested him for came back with bad results.  They even suspect he has an infection somewhere in his little body.  The doctor was cross with Ramona – angry that she hadn’t brought this child in a long time ago.  I wonder how she could have done this????  It cost $8 or $9. for the bus ride and that doesn’t count the ‘bribery’ money for the doctor.  A Romanian doctor will not see a patient without extra money from the patient on TOP of what the government pays them in salary.   

After the bloodwork, Norbert was sent to radiology and those results were even worse.  There is something in the hip area that is preventing him from walking.  They think he will need surgery and they said it was very grave.  Norbert has to see a pediatric specialist this week.  Please keep your fingers crossed for this little boy.  I will keep you posted.

RAMONA'S HAPPY TEARS

RAMONA'S HAPPY TEARS

It was another successful buying trip and delivery to Tagadau.  People received food, clothing and school supplies.  There were so many happy faces and even  few tears of joy.  We were very fortunate to receive $342 from one donor and were therefore able to buy more food and supplies than we were able to on the first trip.
Thank you everyone!
