When Simona Stewart and I began to dream together about the possibility of the House of Angels so many years ago, with just huge hearts, empty pockets and seemingly impossible ideas, we could have never imagined all that we would undertake in the years to follow. I remember the promise I made to her that first day when we decided we would embark on this journey together, that she could always know that I would be there for her, and she returned that sentiment to me. We would step out in faith with this, and know that God would provide for what he wanted to come to fruition. Was that ever true! Because of that, a friendship beyond any measure formed across the ocean to the country of my own children’s birth. A friendship that has a bond of sisterhood with the orphans as it’s very core. I pay tribute to my friend Simona on this ending of a wonderful year full of great deeds and even still, such huge hearts.
The House of Angels would like to thank all of their supporters, donors, volunteers, friends, prayer partners and the staff that work tirelessly for the children so gently entrusted inside it’s strong walls. Thank you for this year of hope, this year of dreams that seemed unreachable, thank you for your support and generosity.
On New Years Eve, it is a Romanian tradition to leave a lamp alight on the New Year’s night until the dawn. This light has shined eternal each year during all of the years of the projects we have done. The light will continue to shine again this new year with your help. Fie ca lumina sărbătorilor să vă rămână în inimi tot anul Toate cele bune! Un an nou fericit! (May the light of the Holidays be in your hearts all year long! All the best! Happy New Year!)
