Empty House


Well, the girls are gone and the house is empty. We are still in a bit of shock over Tanya and Luba. We will be fine, though. We realize that this is God's plan for them, us, and their new family. We don't want anyone to feel awkward or upset over this. Please continue to send comments and e-mails, we love hearing from all of you! We will take a few days off and not post to regroup. The phone call to Zina this weekend will surely raise our spirits. I'm sure we will be ready to post then and tell you all about it.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

We love you guys and we know you will miss Tanya and Luba. We'll be sure to pray for you and for them and for what the Lord has in store next for your family. We're excited to see what that will be and who will be filling the rooms at Internat Longmont.

Wow, what an incredible journey you have taken and you haven't had an appointment with the SDA yet. I know the road is rough, but you're right God is so faithful in His plan. Don't ever loss sight of that, especially when the heart gets broken and things are going in the direction that seems logical. You two have been "Gloriously Wounded", for Him.

Wow - how heartbreaking. But you guys truly showed your love to these girls by letting them go. WHat an unselfish act. I pray that God blesses you in huge ways.

We know how emotionally hard this must be, but your faith and trust in God and his plan is a testament to Him. Thanks for sharing it.

Praying for you as this journey continues.

It was a joy for me to meet Tanya and Luba at the dental office. I was amazed to hear their story and learn about their time with Heidi and Felix. I am sure that their stay with you will forever touch their lives. Their stay with you lead to them being reunited with their little brother. You will be blessed for all you have done.
