We received word last evening from our agency that our papers have been sent to Kiev! YES!!! There are some difficulties at the SDA in processing dossiers as they are backlogged. They anticipate us getting an appt date in September to arrive in Ukraine some time in Oct/Nov. We are another step closer to bringing our daughters home! :o) We thank you all for your continued prayers and ask that you join us in praying that the process goes smoothly and quickly at the SDA.

Monkeying Around with My Boys

Sunday was Derek's 21st Birthday! Funny, I don't feel like the mother of a 21-year old. Come to think of it ... I think look pretty good to be the mother of a 21-year old! :o)

Anyway, the boys and I spent the day in Columbus going shopping and to the zoo. Here are a couple pics. Derek wouldn't let me take but a couple of him.

Flutter By

On my drive home from work today on Tuesday, I was in the car listening to Mark Schultz's Broken & Beautiful CD, listening to Precious Child. I was thinking of Rymma and Taya when 2 butterflies fluttered passed my windshield. One of John's favorite songs for the girls is Butterfly Kisses and I immediately thought of Rymma and Taya when I saw the butterflies. I thanked God for that moment right there and then! While I know we are not getting Taya, I couldn't help but think that God was letting me know that they were thinking of me too.
