Let's Talk About Petrica: Tanner Romania Mission
Petrica came to us in 1999 when he was 6 yrs old.
Till that time he was living at the orphanage in a crib with Constantin, one of our other boys, so the two of them really feel like brothers but have no memory of the orphanage now, in fact they choose to believe that Bruce and Sandie are their parents!
Petrica attends public school after several years of home tutoring and has just is just starting 6th grade. He lives at Casa Rachel with his 10 brothers.
