  1. A friend from my fundie days is holding a Facebook fundraiser to raise money so that she can host two orphans from the Ukraine for Christmas. An organization, http://www.openheartsandhomes.org/, arranges for orphans from eastern Europe to spend a month with Christian U.S. families. Afterward, they return to the orphanage. I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Sure, the orphans will celebrate Christmas with gifts, abundant food, and a temporary family. But, I would imagine that returning to the orphanage would be depressing, knowing what they lack. Am I a scrooge, or does this raise red flags for anyone else?

    The Bergeys are in South Africa.

    I just checked in on the Bergeys and, to my dismay, they reached South Africa with their multiple children (both bio and adopted) in tow. Selina is the lady who famously wiped her blog of incriminating evidence when she found our critiques of her parenting and aspirations to run an orphanage in South Africa. The Bergeys have no qualifications except unaccredited Bible College "degrees" and "hearts for orphans." And she gives us an update. http://littlefishministries.org/behind-the-scenes-and-culture-shock/ She has culture shock, their volunteer visas were denied, and they seem to be over-staying their tourist visas. More Poisonwood. Previous thread contains links to her old (much edited) blogs:
  3. http://www.recoveringgrace.org/2011/08/ ... ve-part-1/ http://www.recoveringgrace.org/2011/08/ ... ve-part-2/ Perhaps someone who knows more about it can clear it up. But from what I understand, Gothard would get ATI familes to come and care for the Russian orphans and they also had a school at this training center that the children went to. So the "mother" in this article who beats the Russian child is actually an American ATI mother who doesn't even speak the language and is supposed to be caring for this child.
