Denis' Dental Work

We found out today that D's teeth are far worse than his brother's were and V's were BAD this summer.  D basically needs 4 extractions and fillings in almost every tooth in his mouth.  The dentist said this was caused by gross neglect and poor diet as a young child.  I have never seen anything like his teeth.  Even the front ones need fillings!  The dental hygienist was so moved by D's story that she wrote a check on the spot to pay for all 4 of his extractions.  We don't have insurance on the boys because they aren't "ours" so this is all an out of pocket expense.  The dentist office has agreed to cut the bill in half, but even after the extractions, this still leaves us with about $1K worth of work.  If you want to help us out, here's how!  We have two appointments back to back next week to get his mouth taken care of before he goes back to Ukraine.  We just cannot send him back with teeth too painful to even brush.

D with his Christmas ornament we engraved for him.  He was SO happy with it.  We finally got a tiny glimpse of a smile.



Thank you!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
