little hands

Oh my, there is so much to tell. It was a really hard trip back to Russia. I wish these children could all receive desperate medical attention before serious medical issues arise. . I wish I could snap my fingers and make it all better for some of these precious children.I will probably open a private blog to share our story of a little girl I had hoped to become one of ours. Unfortunately we will not be able to bring her home but, will help her with what she needs medically.She will always be connected to us due to circumstances. As I left and snuggled her with a blanket made just for her I promised her she is loved and would do all I can to help her and others who need medical help but, do not get it due to lack of funds.So much could be prevented !!I often wonder if we would have gotten there sooner would things be the same?I do know my eyes were once again opened to do all I can.

However we will still be bringing home another little one. HE is a precious baby boy!He was sporting a pretty Pink outfit!Yes, this will change.It has been a bit of changing gears for us but, we are exited to bring this little guy home.I was not really expecting to bring home a baby but, he really is and is precious !Do not know exactly when we will return but, am thinking probably April or May for court. Russia have changed the waiting period after court from 10 to 30 days so we will have to make another trip to bring him home.

So sweet in his little pink outfit. How exciting! Were your planning this adoption while you were in process of the other, or was it just fast?

ten will be....?

Oh how exciting! A sweet, little baby boy! So wonderful for you. I hate to hear about the one left behind - it breaks my heart! But God has a plan and a purpose - and your purpose right now, must be this baby boy! What an amazing story I'm sure you have, that I can not wait to hear! I pray the rest of this journey goes smoothly for you!

You have amazing strength and a heart of gold. I can guess at this difficult journey for you and I know how hard it was for me to go thru once! I look at Anna and am so thankful we were able to bring her home, but the journey for me was so hard and I just can't fathom doing it again. Those children DO deserve families and medical attention and I so desperately hope Russia will somehow make it easier for more families to connect with these children instead of harder and harder. Are you still using the same staff?? I do hope you keep me updated! I'm very excited for you.
