you always emphasise that children pray for their adoptive parents, and that their prayers have great power. When I read these words, I got a shiver down my spine. I felt that as an adoptive mother I had experienced the power of this prayer in an incredible way.
In September, I drove down to Italy with my husband. I am a healthy, fit, active woman who has worked as a family judge for more than thirty years. On the first night, I suddenly became paralysed in my left foot, then I lost the use of my legs and finally I became bed-ridden, practically incapacitated from the waist down. I was in a great deal of pain. Eventually, I was diagnosed with a medullary cone fracture. The prognosis was hopeless: I would never walk again.
I didn’t know that among the people praying for me, there are also the children from Kasisi, who pray to heaven every day for their adoptive parents….
And a miracle happened: after two and a half months of rehabilitation in hospital, I was fortunate to find myself back at home. I live on the third floor (no lift). I can walk without crutches, walkers or any other aids. The doctors consider it a miracle.
I really want my story to reach not only the children, but also other adoptive parents. I want them to know that the prayers of the little ones in Kasisi really do have great power.
Give a big hug to our dear Anastasia from us.
Such a message arrived in our inbox from one of the adoptive parents. We have no doubt that Kasisi turns pure evil into pure good. We have seen it time and again that by giving something of ourselves, we gain much, much more. This is how Adoptions from the Heart works.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
