Day 8, Jordan's Birthday Party

Jordan turned 17 today! I can't think of a greater gift than those who have nothing giving of themselves. Happy Birthday, Jordan.

That is all for now. We are scheduled to have court on Thursday morning, but that is dependant on the SDAs approval and sending our documents by Wednesday. So we wait. If court happens this Thursday, the 10 day wait is over on the 13th of February. I would spring her from the orphanage forever on Valentines Day! Barring an "unforeseen circumstance", we could be home by the weekend of February 19th!

I tell you this because I don't believe in superstition or jinxing things, I believe in the power of prayer and God's Love for us! I feel your prayers working here for us and after 3 long years, perhaps God feels it is time, too!

So happy that Jordan was able to go with you on this life changing journey. I know it will be a birthday she never forgets. To experience those children who have probably never had a birthday cake, presents, etc., give of themselves to make her birthday special. Once again, I am in tears!! Prayng for you!!

Happy Birthday Jordan!
Many tears from this post! I see visions of all the little girls we have hosted as I watch the video of Heidi loving on those precious girls. Desperately seeking the affection and love of a Mama & Papa. Please share the process to get these girls registered in this particular region, why havent they been already if they are relinquished? Thinking I may already know the answer, but can it be moved along? I would love to see them find a loving family.

Andrew had a birthday in Ukraine when we adopted Adam - a special memory! It's great to see all the love and attention being passed around! We'll keep praying things continue to move along quickly.
