Home Stretch!

We are in the home stretch now. We will be picking up Julian tomorrow and the other two on Friday. We got the passports today and I think we have driven all over Lugansk and Stakhanov five times in the last couple days. We accomplished what usually takes several days in just a couple days. We have met some very helpful people along the way and can't believe some of the mountains that have been moved for us. Amazing to see God working and have so many prayers answered. We are headed to Kiev this weekend where we will relax as a family and then start our final hurdles on Monday. If we can get tickets then me may be home late next week!

I can't wait to see the reunion of Alina and her brother tomorrow. She told Kostya today that she saw him a while back when both orphanages were at the circus. She had to wave from very far away because she could not get to him to say hello and she was so happy to see him that she cried. I am glad she will be able to join us to pick him up tomorrow.

Praise the Lord!!! I have not had much time to set down to the computer, I know Lelah has told you everything (the accident, Emily and the skateboard) But today when I got home from school I sat down and read everything and looked at all the pictuers and looked at all the pictuers again, and cried. I am so excited! I just want to hold each one of them, what beautiful childern! What a wonderful family! We love and our prayers are with you.
