“Enjoy the little things, for one day you make look back and realize they were the big things.” ~Robert Brault.
I believe that a beautiful life is made by the little details… the smile of a child, the big blue sky or an act of kindness.

How did it start?
While talking with a friend of ours from New Zealand, Mr. David Elder, he asked us: “What project would you like to start in the future?” and we answered without hesitation: “We want to help the abandoned children in Romania, offering them a loving family where they would be taken care of”.

Our wish was and it continues to be to help children in difficult situations (abuse, neglect, etc.) and especially, to find a family for the children who are abandoned in the hospitals.

Our vision was born from the desire to bring hope to orphan children, caring for them at an early age, trying to avoid the negative effects of abandonment.

Looking back over the last 10 years, we realize that everything started with a small but same time powerful desire to help the abandoned children.

Today we are more convinced then ever that this desire will bring us to a bright future.


If you stand for a REASON, be prepared to STAND ALONE like a TREE.
And if you FALL on the GROUND fall like a seed that grows back to FIGHT AGAIN.
