I am so glad to hear that you did this, Ghost Rider! The Moldovan orphans really need our help. The statistics concerning what happens to these kids is heartbreaking. After they are released from the orphanage, many commit suicide. Of those that don't, some 80 or 90 percent of the girls go into prostitution and a similar percentage of the boys go into organized crime. Without some assistance and support, their futures are absolutely bleak at best.
We have been sponsoring a little girl named Felicia in Falesti for the last 3 years, and are planning to visit her next fall while we are on a six month tour of Moldova. We were thinking of leaving the bike in Romania, worried about the crime levels in Moldova, but I am encouraged to reconsider riding in after hearing that you had a good experience, Ghost Rider.
I would love to have bought one of the books, but I am very glad that you sold out and were able to raise so much for the orphanage. Any chance of a second printing? If not, I was wondering if I could pay you to send me the content electronically?
Thanks for helping the children of Moldova!
p.s. If any one is interested in sponsoring an orphan in Moldova, please contact me and I can put you in touch with an organization that is doing fantastic work there. (Sweet Sleep
)Felicia recently wrote us and said that one of her good friends, Sophia, does not have a sponsor.
