Prayer Request

We started our day with schooling and laundry.  I was so excited to get my laundry soap (Tide) at the “mahgahzene” yesterday.  Catching up on laundry always gives me hope for the future.  The kids were pleased to find some “normal” cereal at the store as well.

We received a phone call this morning from our facilitator.  He said that an interview has been requested by the District Director of Ilya’s (birth) district.  He said this is unusual.  We need to be ready to go by 8:15 tomorrow morning.  The driver will be picking us up and our attorney will be meeting us there.  He said that Ilya will be there too.  We are nervous and a little worried (me more than Bruce).  It is interesting how we kind of take turns being the one who is more confident and are able to bolster each other up in times of uncertainty.  I love how God’s design for marriage works that way and we are always so thankful to be in this together.  I was thankful for Bruce’s confidence this morning as we took it to the Lord in prayer after the phone call.  We would appreciate your prayers as well.  I have not felt scared in any of our other appointments, but this one has me rattled.  Please pray for Ilya as well.  I am sure he will feel nervous and shy too as he is questioned.

We were happy to receive news today from another adoptive family from the States who arrived in Kyiv safe and sound.  They are from AZ and this is their second time around adopting a child from Ukraine.  We will try to get together with them to meet them and spend some time together, as they are staying in an apt. just up the street from us!

    I was so happy to hear from Bruce. It was very unexpected. It was to bad I was in the truck and it was so hard to hear. I can’t get used to all he can do with the computer.This call kind of blew my mind.We got all our loads delivered. Dad was pretty sore last night, but he had a little more movement in his arm. He is still sleeping,so I don’t know how he is this morning. I hope you had good luck with your interview.
