The Bearer of Good News

Finish Packing
Wash and Gas Car
Re-fit Dennis' eye
Go over childcare plans

Almost everything is done.
I am pretty calm. All is good great!

I have the privilege of taking photos of four different children adopted from the same orphanage to show how well they are all doing! I am also taking some things over for the physical therapists that visited the orphanage back in March. I also offered to take documents over for another family which will hopefully speed things along for them. What a blessing to be able to help other families----- the same way so many of you have been just as gracious and loving. Thanks again!

P.S. Since so many of you have asked, yes, the plan is to blog as much of our trip as we can so that we will forever have the memories. Maybe we will get to see another little boy peeing in an airport trashcan.

We would love to get together with any families while we are over there.

You must be on cloud 9!

I'm praying for all 4 of you to have a safe and uneventful (that includes trashcan peeing!) trip. I'm so excited for Julia to get to go! What a new and wonderful experience that will be for her!

Missy said...

So excited for you!! Meredith thinks that since our dossier was already approved except for this one document, we may get a QUICK travel date! Hopefully we can catch up to you quickly! Have a very safe trip over there!!

Good morning,
Thank you so much for stopping in to say hi. Wow, your family is incredible!
Yes, we do need some time to fund raise, the Lord has been amazing and has already provided in such amazing ways. We're hoping to get there just as soon as we can. Thank you so much for your sweet encouragement.
I will be following along as you journey to bring you son home, what a joy.

Christine and family,

I am so excited to follow your journey to and with Alexsey! I can't wait to see how he is doing and how he is going to absolutely thrive in your family. I am so very thankful he will grow up surrounded by love and that he will get to hear about and experience God's love for him through your teaching of God's Word. That was my prayer for him since I first time I met him and it's amazing to see that prayer being answered. I am praying for you and Alexsey and I always will!

How exciting to be getting on the plane soon! I hope you, John, Dennis and Julia have a wonderful trip and Alexsey is going to be so excited! I also hope that the family left at home will do great too! I'll be checking your blog often!

Taylor said...

I can't wait to see pictures and hear about meeting Aleksey for the first time. :) Give him a big hug for me and know that I am praying for you all!

Amy said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you! :)

I can't wait to see the first picture of Alosha with you guys!

Big Hugs!

Laurel said...

I'm very excited for YOU to go, but very glad it's not me. :-) LOL.
I can't wait to see photos of your reunion with Alexsey and for him to KNOW that you ARE his mama and papa. I'll call you guys on Sunday. Our Ukraine visitor arrives tonight (Misha's orphanage director). Wish us luck in communicating as you know how good my Russian is! God bless you and your family as you go through this final phase of the adoption.

I began thinking of you while I was in the pool this evening, had to come inside and check out your blog. Leaving tomorrow!

I'm excited for you, and for Alexsey. I have never followed a family to the Ukraine, and I can't wait to follow your travels. You will be in my prayers.

Thank you so much, Christine, for taking our things to the orphanage. We hated to ask, but were somewhat stuck. Can't wait for you to get Alexey home and follow how well he blends with your wonderful family. Will be praying for you all!
