Welcome to Dayspring.
CHILDREN NEXT WEEK? JUST MIGHT BE....
The documents are finally all signed. We had them done once, then so many things happened...essentially they just do not know how to handle this very different type program - we do not fit into a box that has already been defined:
1. Mayor's office decided they needed some different guidelines - needed new documents....to reflect this. Did that and then....
2.The government changed their structure - needed new documents..checked out what they wanted and did that...turned them in and then...
3. We have a new mayor...new documents again.
They are complete and we are ready - our area mayor's office said they are ready to place children now.
ANOTHER INCREDIBLE TURN OF EVENTS - the Governor's office (this is the mayor and vice mayor's boss) heard about Dayspring and the Vice Governor came for a visit. She was mightyly impressed with the program concept and the idea of family for children - children who will not be living in an orphanage. She ask for me to come to her office, since I did not meet her at the Center.
My visit was astonishing to say the least. She wants this pilot to work as much as we do. She asked about more homes as such and we said - "let's get this one working well first." Her comment - she picked up the phone and called the Vice Mayor and requested a plan by Monday of how and when they planned to utilize Dayspring, reminding them of all the children who are "living homeless" at the local outdoor market.
Dayspring is new and the concept is so new to Kyrgyzstan. The slow movement is for a purpose and will make us so much stronger as we move forward. WE ARE READY. After a team meeting today - we are so excited to know we have come this far and are still so sure it is THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
HANDS OF HOPE WE HONOR YOUR FOR ENTRUSTING US WITH THIS INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!!!
