It's a great day by Charissa

we made it to Chicago. very fun to people-watch at the Chicago airport.
Had a wonderful good-bye this morning with lots of hugs and kisses but no tears!! Yeah!!
Almost finished a good book, The Connected Child...very informative for adoptive parents.
We were offered the opportunity to wait for the next flight to Frankfurt/Munich,and of course we took it!! That means our roundtrip tickets are free!! The Lord has interesting ways of meeting needs. Because of our delay, we met another family with 2 boys and 2 girls, a homeschooling farming family, on their way to adopt 2 more from vietnam. Of course we became instant friends and exchanged blogs.
We got to experience Chicago style hot dogs, and got free meal vouchers for giving up our seats. Nice. Regretting staying up so late but will have a bed soon. Flat Stanley is enjoying himself too. God is good and we sense His peace and favor.

Glad you guys are doing well. Hopefully, the rest of your journey to Kiev will be uneventful.

That's awesome! While the delay stinks, the free tickets certainly don't! :) Love the pictures! Can't wait to hear you've arrived safely.

We serve an incredible God! Praise to him for the free tickets, and knowing that with God all things are possible. Somehow this doesn't suprise me as your heart is aligned with God's heart for His children:) We love you guys and will be following your blog as you travel. Our prayers are with you and your family in OK, with Ava and the people you will see in the Ukraine. God bless and have a wonderful time together as you prepare to bring Ava home to the USA.

Sounds like the beginning of an unusual adventure, the brick and mortar of what the substance of wht such life is made. It gave us a reason to rejoice here in Dover, Ohio
