A Prayer for Straight legs

Born with deformed legs and neglected by her birth parents, Alyona asked God for help. Discover the two ways this little girl’s prayers were answered. Read Transcript


Terry: SHE WAS BORN

WITH DEFORMED LEGS, AND HER

ALCOHOLIC PARENTS BARELY

EVEN FED HER.

WITHOUT HELP, SHE WOULD HAVE

WOUND UP IN A WHEELCHAIR IF

SHE SURVIVED CHILDHOOD.

WHEN THE DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL SERVICES IN UKRAINE

FOUND OUTHER, THEY

TOOK HER TO FATHER'S HOUSE,

WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." SHE IS

WELL-CARED FOR AND GETTING

THE HELP SHE NEEDS TO COMBAT

YEARS OF NEGLECT.

BECAUSE THIS IS A CHRISTIAN

CHILDREN'S HOME, SHE IS ALSO

LEARNING HOW TO PRAY.

I PRAYED TO GOD AND ASKED

HIM FOR STRAIGHT LEGS SO I

CAN RUN AND JUMP LIKE THE

OTHER KIDS.

AND I ASKED HIM TO SEND ME A

MOMMY AND A DADDY.

Terry:

"ORPHAN'S PROMISE" HAS

SUPPORTED FATHER'S HOUSE FOR

YEARS, AND SO WHEN SHE CAME

HERE AND THEY SAW SHE NEEDED

SURGERY, THEY CALLED US.

WE PAID FOR TWO DIFFERENT

SURGERIES TO FIX ALONA AS

LEGS, SO SHE CAN HAVE THE

BEST CHANCE POSSIBLE AT

HAVING A NORMAL LIFE.

I HAVE ALREADY HAD

SURGERY ON ONE OF MY LEGS.

I SAW IT WAS VERY STRAIGHT

WHEN THE DOCTORS SHOWED ME.

Terry: THE DOCTORS

HADN'T YET STARTED THE

SECOND OPERATION WHEN A

CHRISTIAN COUPLE CAME TO

FATHER'S HOUSE.

RE MET HE WE MET HER

WHEN SHE WAS GETTING READY

FOR HER NEXT SURGERY.

WE SPENT TIME WITH HER AND

LIKED HER VERY MUCH.

SO WE GOT ALL OF OUR PAPERS

TOGETHER AND WE ADOPTED HER

AND MADE HER OUR OWN

DAUGHTER.

Terry: ALONA HAS BEEN

LIVING WITH HER NEW FAMILY

FOR TWO YEARS.

SHE IS A HAPPY AND BRIGHT

9-YEAR-OLD.

ALL OF HER PRAYERS HAVE BEEN

ANSWERED.

SHE IS HEALTHY AND SHE HAS

PARENTS WHO LOVE HER.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING OUR

DAUGHTER THE SURGERY SHE

NEEDED.

MAY GOD REWARD YOU FOR ALL

YOU HAVE DONE FOR US.

MY DREAMS CAME TRUE

THANKS TO YOU.

I WILL ALWAYS PRAY FOR YOU

AND THANK GOD FOR YOU.
