Happy Birthday USA!

The Family plus a few...but they are family too!

We go to court on July 16th here in SC to obtain US birth certificates for the kids and have the paperwork we need to obtain their citizenship. It should all be formality, but we take nothing for granted and request your prayers as we offer up ours.

The Father has continued to provide for us abundantly above all we could think or ask. Thank you so much for continuing to walk thru this journey with us.

  1. My name's Nicole, I live in Nebraska, and I was just recently directed to your blog. I have been praying for these kids since the summer of 2008 when a woman named Michelle came to my church and spoke to us about orphans in the Ukraine. I e-mailed her asking for an update on these kids last week, and was overjoyed when I heard they had been adopted. I'm so glad that through your blog I will be able to keep up with them, and am able to come up with new prayer requests for these beautiful children of God.

    God bless, from your newest reader/friend in Nebraska.
