Starting Over

Happy New Year to you! I can't believe it has been 2 months since I have written. As many of you know, so much has happened.

We had a failed adoption back in October, and needed time to grieve this loss. I have mentioned the possibility of a moratorium (a halt on international adoptions from Ukraine) and the Ukrainian parliament continues to move towards making this vote pass. With this in mind, Chris and I have decided not to continue our adoption process from Ukraine, but move forward with a domestic adoption.

We are having to start the process all over - our home study has to be updated, we have to find a new agency, and we are thinking of adopting a child from the U.S. foster system. Of course, we are leaving everything open to what God has planned.

I am attaching the video clip from our silent auction. The photos/video were provided by our dear friend, Sharon Miller with Sharon Miller photography. We love her work and she did a great job capturing the joy of the night.

We will continue to keep you updated.

Much love,
