New Blog

Derek and Renee have decided to keep the remainder of their adoption journey on a private blog. Thank you for following along with them and praying for them as they continue to walk towards bringing their boys home!

They received their official invitation to travel to Ukraine, just last week and will be flying to Ukraine on Wednesday morning. It has been quite a whirlwind for them as they prepare for all the last minute travel details.

Here's a note from Renee from an email this morning:
"Just wanted to make you aware that an Italian couple is at the orphanage that our boys are at. They just adopted our little Makar. This is hard on all of us. I had a gut feeling that this might happen with one of our boys. We know that God is in control though. He knows what's best for our family.

At this point, we will wait to choose our third child until we get to the orphanage. Please pray for us on our journey. We really need your prayer support.

We leave Wednesday morning at 10:30AM and arrive in Ukraine 16 hours later."

I will keep you updated as I receive further information and photos from Derek and Renee. Please pray for them! - Tracie

Thank you so much for allowing me to follow along.

I'm sorry to hear that Makar was adopted by another family but I am happy to hear that he was adopted. God is certainly in control and I'm sure there is a reason for things to work out the way they are.

Praying for you on your journey.
