The Risk of International Adoption

We found out last Thursday that the Ukrainian Parliament was set to vote today on a moratorium for foreign adoptions. Since then, we have prayed and prayed and prayed some more. We knew going into an international adoption that laws could change at anytime, but we had no experience with it until now.

We received an update from our coordinator in Ukraine regarding the vote for a moratorium. The Parliament has postponed the vote. Our coordinator said that it could be postponed for a few months or for a year. At this point it's hard to tell. In any case, she feels it is unlikely the moratorium will pass. However, we are finishing our dossier as soon as possible so we can send it to Ukraine and get it registered. 

We are so grateful and we know that many families feel the same way. Please continue to pray for those who are in the process of their adoption, for the children waiting to be adopted, and for us to get our dossier registered soon. 

Much love,
