Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work - Denis 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," says Denis. "I didn’t have a bed or toys; and I cried a lot."

Social Services eventually rescued Denis and took him to Father's House, a Christian children's home supported by Orphan's Promise.

Galina Andreevna works at the home and remembers when Denis first arrived.

"Denis was wild and very frightened at first. He scratched and bit people. He hid food and had a hard time getting along with other kids," Galina says. "But we loved him, and worked with him, and over time he began to change."

"They took care of me and fed me," says Denis. "And I had my own bed. That was nice. They also taught me how to pray. I started asking God to give me a mom and dad who would be nice to me."

Around that time, Luda and Misha, who both work for Orphan's Promise, saw a picture of Denis on a brochure.

"I knew immediately that this little boy needed to be in our family," says Luda. "The first time we met him, he ran to Misha. Denis was filled with joy, and we knew he was ours."

Thanks to Father's House and Orphan's Promise, Denis found a family who loves him.

"Denis is such blessing to us," says Denis's new father, Misha. "He needed us, but now I realize that we needed him too."

"This is the happiest I have ever been,” says Denis. "I have a family; and I'm very thankful for that."
