Some news

Well, we survived the first winter storm of the season. I (Felix) got half a day off on Wednesday and all day off on Thursday. The kids didn't have school on Thursday. Poor Heidi had to go to work, though. Everyone is back at school or back at work today. Eileen Christofferson came over for a couple of hours yesterday with Ann, Sophie and Anna. We popped some corn and watched a movie after the kids came in from playing in the two feet of snow in our yard.

We received word this morning that all is well with our adoption plans and that we haven't been forgotten. Here's what our facilitator had to say.
  • The SDA confirmed that our facilitator's info was correct and R is indeed available this month
  • We will not get an appointment this week or next, but rather the second week of November
  • He expects an appointment for the end of November or the first week of December

That's good news because we were actually dreading news that we would be given an appointment within two weeks. Yikes! We know a couple of families that have been given an appointments that close from their submission dates. Wow!

In closing, we ask that you remember two families in your prayers. We lift these families up to the Lord as they follow His plan for them.

  • Jim & Teressa, who despite heartbreak and considerable setbacks have marched forward for the third time this year to bring home not one, but two to three children from Ukraine.
  • Bruce & Michelle DeYoung. Bruce is returning to finish up the work he and Michelle started last month. They are bringing home two teen-aged children from the same orphanage as R & Z.

Thanks for the updates. We've thought of you every time the national news shows a clip of the weather you guys are getting. We'll be praying for these two famililes. Keep us posted!

Congratulations on finally hearing something! I think that is always the hardest, the unknown. Can't wait to hear your posts from Ukraine again! God bless your journey, your daughter, and those who go before you preparing the way!
