Just Heard...  

We just heard from our facilitator that there is a GOOD PROBABILITY that we will be able to adopt Misha from the institution that he was transferred too!!!  That is SO EXCITING!

We've been gathering things that we need for the trip to the artic!  We bought each other waterproof shoes (really their boots) for Christmas.  I got a warm coat too for Christmas.  We bought a BULK PACK of hand warmers.  We heard throught the grapevine that once again, Ukraine hasn't paid Russia their natural gas bill and the heat/hot water is off in at least parts of the country.  We've also both got Under Armor underwear and shirts...  We're READY for cold.  But if God chooses to send a heat wave, that'll be cool too!

We've bought a few toys for the boys...coats for them, we knitted some hats for them, bought car seats, have their beds set up, working on quilts for them, made fleece throw blankets for them...  Sounds like we're excited, huh???

Praying for God's will and timing!

What next?

    I'll be praying for that "heat wave" to hit the Ukraine as well.

    Oh that would be so wonderful if you could adopt Misha!!! It broke my heart that he had to be left behind. I am praying for a heat wave for you while you are there, but also for the children that are cold in the orphanages there.

    Hey there, thanks for sharing your story (below)! I'm attempting to get caught up from my week away :) It's so exciting to know that you are in the same position that we were just a year ago. What an amazing turn around it's been for our family, I can't wait to see what He has up His sleeve for yours :) We received our travel date on December 26th for January 21st SDA appointment, and I'm praying that you and Tracie will have the same turn around! Blessings!
