Plans for 2019! A Post I Never Thought I’d Be Writing!

A very belated (as per usual) Happy New Year!

This new year for me, brings new (AND HUGE!) changes!


This spring, I will being moving from Bucharest, Romania and settling down in England. It seems surreal to type that, as I thought and lived like I would be in Bucharest forever. This decision was made over the past year but once I DID make the decision, it was an easy one. Its not to say that this decision hasn’t been a bittersweet one or an emotional one, but instead, one that I have thought about a lot.

To some, it’ll be a big surprise, but to others close to me, it wont be. I have been so blessed to have had the opportunity and support to be here, and stay here as long as I have, but now I know it’s the right time to move on.

Hope Rescue Centre has been the best part of my time here in Romania. Working closely with people who have the same passion and vision as me is a complete JOY and something I am so thankful to have been a part of. For those of you who have been financially donating to camps, Christmas fundraisers, holidays, specific families, and to ME, you have been a huge part of why Hope Rescue Centre is up and running faster than we could have imagined.

Hope Rescue Centre has been rapidly growing and will continue to do so, but only with the support of people who have supported the homeless children and families over the passed 3 years.  If you would like to make a one time donation to HRC, or even switch you monthly donations to them, PLEASE do so.  I know the money will be used in the best ways, to get homeless families and children off of the street, and give them the chance to be educated, cared for, and job trained.

If you wish to donate to Hope Rescue Centre use the email address:

For other ways to donate to HRC, please visit the website:

If you get “regular” snail mail newsletters from me, one more is being sent out next week with slightly more information and also to express my thankfulness and gratitude for so many of you being on this journey with me for almost EIGHT YEARS!

I am thrilled, excited and anxious to start my new chapter and adventure in England, but leaving Romania after so long, is going to be tough. Please pray for a smooth transition for me and for Weasley, who has already happily settled in England!

For one of the last times ever,

Blessings from Bucharest!

  1. Hi Camilla What’s the procedure for me now? If I wish to contribute to Hope Rescue Center will Sowers International move my donation over there? Just wondering. Thanks Judy

    • Hi Judy, I’ve emailed you the procedure with the director of Hope Rescue Centre to help you if you have any questions. Thank you for wanting to continue to support these wonderful children.

  2. Hi Camilla, if there’s one thing you can count on in life and that’s change. You’re onto your next adventure in England and I’m so happy for you and Tony.  Please  keep us in the loop as to what goes on in your life, it’s very interesting. I was so hoping to see you when you were here for Katie‘s wedding but I know things around weddings can be very busy with family and all. Your mom filled me in on everything that’s happened, it  sounded like a wonderful day. I’m sure you’re keeping up with the girls on Facebook or Instagram what would we do without that. Best to you always. Nancy
