Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
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)

It is Monday afternoon in Ukraine as I write this (Monday morning my time), and our facilitator was supposed to submit our dossier to the SDA officials today!! I am nervous, however, as there is one document (2 copies of our marriage license) that didn't copy well and some of the small print is hard to see. If they reject those documents, we have replacements that we can zip over there asap, but that would probably set us back a a good 2 weeks, and this is taking long enough! (You can see the little countdown graphic below of how long it's been since we officially committed to Simon.)

Please pray with us that the officials will accept all of our documents and give us a travel date soon! Thanks!!
