New Medical is Complete!

I was able to redo our medicals today and scanned and emailed them to our facilitator so that he will have them. I will send them off to a courier tomorrow who will apostille them in Sacramento because our local office was closed due to cutbacks in California. Hopefully, our travel date will be moved up. The quicker Alexsey is home, the longer he will have to spend time with his new siblings before they go back to school in August.

I will begin shopping for plane tickets tomorrow, and will call a few branches of our bank to ask them to set aside the newest looking money they have for me to sort through for our trip. I emailed the owner of the apartment we stayed at last time, and Julia is almost packed.

Can you believe this is finally happening? After all this time, Alexsey is getting a family!

Praise God!

P.S. I would really, really appreciate if all of you that have sent cards, gifts, well wishes, or donations would email me with your name and address. You don't have to say what you gave, but I would like to include you on a mailing list if that is alright. My email is thereed8@yahoo.com.

I have goosebumps and my heart is jumping around thinking about this! I am so excited for you! Now I better get to praying harder so you can get there sooner.

Why do you need new looking money?

I can't wait to see photos of your new little one in your arms.

Does he know you are adopting him, or will he find out when you are in country the first time?

Christine...I have to tell you I was awake in the night which, for me, is a time of prayer and I prayed for your family and all that is happening now and will be happening in the weeks to come!
I am constantly amazed at God's hand, and here, across the miles that he has brought your family into my house so that we can pray for you!!!
