Quick Update

I wanted to thank you all for your prayers about Abe's remaining leave.  Thanks to answered prayers and a wonderful HR department, we were able to work out Abe's leave for the next two weeks while I go and finally get Vika home.  We are blessed above measure!

We found out yesterday that the long anticipated closure in Vika's country is really going into effect starting July 11.  There are so many families currently in process that will be delayed by several months and some that may be delayed indefinitely with this closure and the change in the adoption process and which children will continue to be adoptable.  Please pray for these families and the children that will be left behind without a mama or a papa!  For many of these children, time is of the essence, and they do not have a voice to move this process forward!  Pray that this closure will bring about a lot of positive change in a country, who has so many children, who need families! 

Off I go... so many things to do... so little time!  :)


  1. What a great, immediate answer to prayer...thank you, Lord! Will keep this country, and the families involved in my prayers. Thanks for the info!

  2. So glad for answered prayer. Praying for a safe journey for you and Vika.

  3. I am so excited you are almost at the end!!! Let me know if your travel plans change. We would like to come greet you. Right now we will be in Nashville on the 1st(juliana's followup from heart surgery is that day). But if it does change let me know! Praying for the remainder of your journey!
