God is Good

This is today's news.

The vote that was scheduled for tomorrow to ban international adoptions in Alexsey's birth country is no longer on the docket, and not re-scheduled for any time in the near future (at this time).

Praise the Lord.

Thank you for your prayers!

This is amazing in my opinion and just one more example of a present day miracle. On another note, new legislation is being discussed about adoption but I just don't know what it is. Please pray that they are considering expanding the list of special needs so that we can go and get Alexsey now.

Thank you so much.

PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!

i cannot tell you how i have been praying for this. when i first heard about the vote via Ashley's blog, my heart literally skipped a few beats. i'm not a parent but i know many who feel that their child is in ::name of country:: and would be crushed if they couldn't get them - not just you, not just Ashley, but so many. to you, they aren't just a face or a name... and i care very deeply about that.

praying that whatever happens tomorrow will be good news!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have a private one that is more about the adoption if you are interested....

Yes, we were seriously considering Aleksey. It really bothered us that he was so close to his 4th birthday- we have a daughter with SB and we KNOW how normal life can be and also know that many people wouldn't step forward because of fear of the unknown. Our daughter had a very big surgery and recovery scheduled for Jan 31 and we just couldn't commit before she was recovered- we prayed SO VERY HARD that another family would step forward if we weren't to be his family and YOU DID!!!! You have no idea how we sang and danced, thrilled for you and the blessings that Aleksey is going to bring to your family!!!! But you are aware of that of course, since you have been so blessed by all your other children! God is good! We prayed over a couple of other boys with SB- Joshua, Victor, but finally realized that God was calling us to a girl. Committing to Tori has been the most amazing thing- what an incredible journey so far- God has just moved things through very quickly. We committed on April 30 and sent the application to our homestudy agency at that time and here we are a month later, and all we are waiting on is USCIS approval! It's amazing how we have fallen in love with Tori in such a short period of time!!!!
