This month Alexsey will celebrate his 4th birthday! How I wish we could be there with him to help him blow out the candles on the his birthday cake. Oh wait! He probably won't have any birthday candles, nor will he have a cake. My heart aches for him and all of the other children who will have yet another birthday that goes unnoticed. This is the case for most children in orphanages.
But the bright side is that, God is good! And hopefully this means that this will be Alexsey's last birthday without a birthday cake and candles. This will be the last time that his life isn't celebrated when it is his birthday! Heck, we will celebrate each and everyday once he is home!
And to think that all of you will be able to celebrate with us through blogland! I can't wait to see his adorable smile as he enjoys his first bite of real birthday cake and opens his first present!
And we are one step closer! Today I found out that our adoption petition was submitted at the SDA! Wooo-hooo!
And Alexsey's adoption fund has $295 more dollars today! So much to praise! So much to be thankful for! Our tax-return was processed and deposited into our bank account the other day and now we know that we can count on that money too!
God is so good. All of you who continue to email me and leave me comments play such a vital role in Alexsey's adoption. You are all such an encouragement.... especially when we hit an obstacle! Thank you so much!
You are a blessing to me and to my whole family!
