Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

oNjQkLBA.jpegOn Friday night we lost our precious, little Iuliana to heart failure. Her heart was weak and after battling with severe flu at hospital it couldn’t cope anymore. Our hearts are filled with sadness at the loss of this beautiful girl. Iuliana was a kind and shy girl who had just found a sponsor and was beginning to thrive under our support. She loved going to school and enjoyed learning how to write.

Iuliana told us that the best day of her life was her very first day at school. She wanted to be a teacher when she was grown up. She loved dogs and would have turned 7 next week.

Our thoughts and love are with Iuliana’s family. One day the suffering in this world will end. Jesus will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.

On Thursday the community will come together for Iuliana’s funeral. Open Hands, the local mayor, the priest, teacher, social worker and wider family have all come together to contribute to the funeral and celebrate Iuliana’s life.

You will always be in our hearts Iuliana and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to meet you, beautiful girl.

Rest in peace.

With love Rebekka and team
