according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

We have been doing quite well, thank you, getting our documents in order for our dossier. In fact, everything was coming together so nicely I was getting a little bit arrogant! Ahem-- NEVER get arrogant when God is watching!! We've hit our first snag.

Nothing major, mind you, but still... We finally got our Medical forms filled out and everything looks okay (though we still need to scan them over to our coordinator to proof), but when we had the notary do her "thing", we noticed that her commission expires this October! What, you say? October? You'll be to Ukraine and back by then!! No. Yes, we will be, God willing, but all of the notary public's stamps have to say dates that don't expire for ONE YEAR after they receive the docs in the country!! UGH. Where in the world are we going to find a notary who will travel with us to the doctor's office and wait until he is able to sign another form for us? I guess we'll just have to start asking around... (I'll make that Mark's job! lol)

UGH. And things were going so weeeeeeell...!!
