Living in constant fear while completely relying on God for protection culminated in one fateful moment. After being psychologically wounded and physically exhausted, Virginia let her guard down as a member of the secret police entered her office with a mission to kill her. The events that transpired late that evening inspired the title of her book, “Saving My Assassin,” and captures the transformative power of God’s message to His creation.
Virginia was eventually granted political asylum by U.S. president Ronald Reagan. In 1988, she was exiled to America with her family to discover political and religious freedom that she was never allowed to enjoy in Romania. The destination was Dallas, Texas, where Virginia continues to work today as a speaker, international human rights attorney, author, and victory coach, while staying committed to protecting important freedoms in America.
Virginia is proud of the legacy her three children have carried on after raising them virtually on her own. Anca is a counselor after graduating from SMU in Dallas, Andreea is an attorney after graduating from Harvard Law School, and Emanuel is a rescue pilot for the United States Air Force after graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Virginia enjoys practicing law, writing, opera, swimming, the symphony, traveling, and now being a grandmother. Despite her modest appearance and unimposing figure, she packs a powerful punch and a lion’s roar to pierce the hearts of men and women. Virginia especially enjoys her speaking engagements, where she continues to inspire and impact lives through her incredible story of faith and courage.
