Great News


Well we have good news, we are going to Russia. I am not going to get, into all
of the specifics, because of the current climate regarding IA. But, I can tell you we are leaving soon.
We are very excited, also we are being somewhat cautious considering our past experience.
I promise more will be reveled, I am just trying not to jinx us. Thank you again for all of your support and kind words.

We know the truth,
not only by the reason,
but by the heart. -Biaise Pascal (1623-1662)

Very sad news

Last week was really tough for us. We lost our referral.
It happened last week but I did not feel like writing about it. We always knew this could happen, unfortunately this is the second time it has happened to us. We were told a Russian family is in the process of filling out paperwork to adopt her. More than anything I am most upset about the 6 months that have gone by since the referral was given to us. What a waste of time! Our region Stavropol has become more and more difficult since the news of the Colorado couple abusing their children this summer. They are doing everything they can to place the children with Russian families. I hope that a good family is adopting her, she is an amazing little girl. I know our agency is working hard for us right now, they feel really bad. We are just trying to regroup and move forward and hope for a new referral soon. However, because of the problems in the region our agency is thinking about moving us to Vladivostok rather than staying in Stavropol. Ursula
