Here We Grow Again

In 2011 we hosted two Ukrainian orphans and the following year we followed God's calling on our lives to grow our 'already big family' through adoption! The last two years have been full of heartaches and hugs, tears and laughter, struggles and triumphs, and lots and lots of love. My husband sums it up best..."I thought I would be teaching these boys the gospel message but the truth is they are teaching me." We stand amazed at what God is accomplishing through us and in these boys! They are not the same broken, hopeless children that we brought home and we praise God for that!
This summer we stepped out in faith again with the hosting of another orphan; 9 year old Sasha. Once again God has placed adoption on our hearts. The waiting during our last adoption was hard but the burden we now carry to move as quickly as possible is immense as we watch in horror at the advancing Russian aggression-- we feel as though we can't get there quick enough!
We would appreciate your prayers for Ukraine, for Sasha and for our family as we move forward. We would also be ever grateful for any financial assistance you could provide. Unfortunately the speed at which we are able to complete our adoption, as is the case with many adoptions, will depend in large part on how quickly the funds can be raised. Regardless of the amount, please do not underestimate the power of your gift. Every dollar counts!
Thank you and God bless!
