Toddler Taken Away from Adoptive Parents

Sam Khosravi and Maryam Falahi, adopted 3-month old Lydia from a local orphanage. Lydia had a heart defect and digestive problems. Six months after the adoption, Sam and Maryam were among eight Christians who were arrested in July 2019 for their faith in Christ. Sam was charged with “propaganda against the regime” and sentenced to one year in prison whilst Maryam was barred from working as a nurse in government-run hospitals.

Eighteen months later, the Court declared that Lydia was not eligible for adoption by the Christian couple since she was born by parents of another faith. Her heartbroken parents appealed, but in September 2020, the court’s earlier decision was upheld.

Pray for a divine intervention in this situation such that the couple will be allowed to keep their child.  Pray that the convictions against Sam and Maryam will be overturned and the family will be reunited. Pray that God will continue watching over little Lydia and ensure that she gets the best care possible.
