Yippee!!!!!!! Remember, Charissa, when you were frustrated over the wait and someone--maybe your hubby--told you that God was preparing a sympathetic person in Ukraine for you? I think you found that person! I'm so excited for you guys!!!!!!!

Wow! What an AWESOME God we serve.
I prayed for this and I'm sure others did too. The faith in our prayers has made our prayers effective. I knew you would be bringing her home.

Wow. I am just in awe. Almost to tears. Such a beautiful story.

Ava's siblings heard the news as they ran out the door to board the school bus. I think the whole neighborhood heard their shouts of glee! Our tears today are of joy and gratefulness to our God who can change hearts, and circumstances beyond our wildest dreams. I wonder if your shopping spree for the other orphans just absolutely touched God's heart! You are reaping a harvest of lots of seed you have sown! Love you, Oma and Mom
