We're on our way!

Eleven months of prayer, paperwork, heartache, worry, and waiting are done - today is the day we get on a plane and begin the adventure to meet Alyona face-to-face. Soon we will be holding her in our arms, and she will feel the love of God that He has placed in our hearts uniquely for her.

She has no idea what she's in for!

The unconditional love of a family, and ALL that it entails: sisters to play with and help her discover the world; her first taste of homemade chocolate chip cookies; a dog with a waggily tail; a bed and clothes that fit and she can call her own; and most importantly a mama and daddy to hold her, provide for her needs, protect her, be her champions and cheerleaders, and love her like Christ loves us.

Please watch this space for daily updates and prayer requests. We still have many hurdles before us and we need your prayers!
