Hello!! We finally have internet, so sorry for the long delay in posting and thank you for the many notes of encouragement and prayers.
Our trip on Sunday/Monday was perfect, beautiful weather and no delays. We arrived in Kiev at 1:10 pm to a beautiful sunny day.
Our SDA appointment was today at noon and all went well. The lady was so kind and thanked us for adopting these children as they have so little chance for adoption as older children.
We took the referral for the little guy so many of you have been praying for. As we drove away from our appointment our facilitator received a phone call from the facilitator in the region…our little fellow was out yesterday and was hit by a car. He has a broken leg. Reports are that he has been treated and is doing well and called our facilitator himself to let her know. He was very distraught that we would not come for him now. Of course we will and likely by the time this process is completed his leg will have healed. Poor little guy, paralysis from Guillain Barre’ and now this…but the good news is he was obviously mobile and out for this to happen so the many prayers for his paralysis have been answered.
We will post again tomorrow if at all possible. We pick up our referral paperwork between 4 and 5 tomorrow afternoon and then travel to the region tomorrow night. We will meet him on Friday and his sisters on the weekend.
Many thanks for the prayers…keep them coming and we will do all possible to keep you updated!! God Bless!! We love you all…
