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
