No More Days!

3 AM here in Ukraine, 6pm back at home. We are leaving for the airport now. In 2 hours and 50 minutes we will be wheels up and a dream that started two years and three months ago has been realized for one special girl that wanted a family.

I still hear the words from their chaperone back in December 2007 echoing in my mind..."These girls are not registered, just choose some other girls!"

Other harsh words came from the American person we hired to put together our first adoption dossier (we didn't use her again and we subsequetly accomplished our own dossier this time)..."Don't do it, you'll only be hurt, you'll spend tons of money, it won't happen and you'll get your hearts broken!"

GLAD WE DIDN'T LISTEN! (yes, that's me yelling!)

Lizzie, you're next!

I am so happy to hear your story. We have just heard that a girl we hosted last summer and at Christmas is not registerd. Everyone said to find another child. I don't think so. I would appreciate it if I could talk to you for advise. You can email me at mtcpa@swbell.net or call 8306259717.

I am so happy for all of you! We are on a journey also -- for two, maybe three girls. Many naysayers have been along the way, but we just have to keep listening to God. Congrats on your family victory. Praise the Lord!
