The Little Boy With a Big Prayer

Born to drug-addicted parents, Denis was neglected and unloved. All he wanted was a mom and dad who would be nice to him. See how God answered this little boy's big prayer. Read Transcript


Reporter: DENNIS LOVES

PLAYING WITH HIS BROTHER,

BUT HIS LIFE WASN'T ALWAYS

THIS HAPPY.

HIS BIRTH PARENTS WERE DRUG

ADDICTS WHO PAID LITTLE

ATTENTION TO THEIR SON.

MY MOTHER DIDN'T CARE

ABOUT ME, AND NOBODY FED

ME.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE A BED OR

TOYS.

AND I CRIED A LOT.

Reporter: SOCIAL

SERVICES EVENTUALLY RESCUED

DENNIS AND TOOK HIM TO

"FATHER'S HOUSE," A

CHRISTIAN CHILDREN'S HOME

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

HE WAS WILD AND VERY

FRIGHTENED AT FIRST.

HE SCRAPED AND BEAT PEOPLE.

HE WOULD HIDE FOOD AND HAD A

HARD TIME GETTING ALONG WITH

OTHER KIDS.

BUT WE LOVED HIM AND WORKED

WITH HIM.

AND OVER TIME, HE BEGAN TO

CHANGE.

THEY TOOK CARE OF ME AND

FED ME.

AND I HAD MY OWN BED.

THAT WA WAS NICE.

THEY ALSO TOLD ME HOW TO

PRAY.

I STARTED ASKING GOD TO GIVE

ME A MOM AND DAD WHO WOULD

BE NICE TO ME.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

TIME, LUDA AND MISHA, WHO

BOTH WORK FOR "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," SAW A PICTURE OF

DENNIS ON A BROCHURE.

I KNEW IMMEDIATELY THAT

THIS LITTLE BOY NEEDED TO BE

IN OUR FAMILY.

THE FIRST TIME WE MET HIM,

HE RAN TO MISHA, AND DENNIS

WAS FILLED WITH JOY, AND WE

KNEW HE WAS OURS.

Reporter: THANKS TO

"FATHER'S HOUSE" AND

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," DENNIS

FOUND A NEW FAMILY THAT

LOVES HIM.

HE NEEDED US, BUT NOW I

REALIZE THAT WE NEEDED HIM,

TOO.

THIS IS THE HAPPIEST I

HAVE EVER BEEN.

I HAVE A FAMILY AND I'M VERY

THANKFUL FOR THAT.
