The Adventure Begins!!!

Hello Everyone!

We got an official invitation last week to go to Ukraine to meet our boys! We were all so excited when we got the email! The kids were screaming with joy and we were just in shock! It seems like you wait, and wait, and wait, and then the day finally comes and you just can't believe it! It's an amazing feeling! We are all so excited!

As you know, an Italian family is in the process of adopting our precious little Makar. We know that the Lord is in control and although we will miss not getting to meet him and bring him home, we know there is another little boy that we will add to our family who will be the one the Lord has for us. We are thrilled that Makar has a home and family now! Yay!

We fly out of Kansas City at 10:30 Wednesday morning. Please keep us in your prayers. We are excited and nervous all at the same time. Our new friend, Meredith Cornish, has really helped us to know what Ukraine will be like. She and her husband adopted through RR in Ukraine. She gave us great tips and was amazing to talk to. Thanks so much Meredith!

We also want to thank Andrea for all her help with our adoptions! Andrea is amazing and so sweet! She is always so quick
to email us with answers to our thousand questions :). You're awesome Andrea and we pray that the Lord will continue to
bless all you put your hands to! You work tirelessly on behalf of so many precious angels who need families! You are a hero, for sure! I know there are many of you out there who feel the same way about Andrea!

We will be posting lots of pics and will keep all of you up to date on our daily activities in Ukraine! We are excited to share our story with those of you who have been following along on our adventure.

Sasha, Misha and our third surprise child, your new mommy and daddy are on the way! We can't wait to meet you little buddies!

God bless you all and thanks so much to those of you who have been so faithful to pray for us! Wow, that means so much!

Hooray!!!! As I type, you are leaving in just over three hours from now. Enjoy every moment! Since Shawn and Kim aren't online very often, may I call them and let them know of your good news?? We are praying for your journey, the boys, and details. :)

Hi JoAnna,

As I sit here and type,I am so excited for you all!!!! I believe you are in the Ukraine by now and I can hardly wait to see the pics of you and the boys! To see Sasha & Misha and the little one that has a destiny only God knows in your family!!! It is beyond believable! I have been praying, God knows and has the very best plans for us all! You are brave to entrust Him completely with it! A real tangible example of what a life in Christ is all about! I am challenged and encouraged and excited, did I already say that! LOL!

You're so sweet Sarah! Thanks for all of your encouragement! We can't wait to show off the pics of our boys!

Love and hugs from Ukraine :)
