Are you packed yet?

The answer is no. I hope to be. I want to be but no I'm not. So There. WE plan to pack light and so far with nothing packed that's working out pretty well.  But seriously pray that we can get it together including our house because we need to. And yes Im excited. Some people have been saying to me that they dont even know where the Ukraine is. Here is a map. We R headed to the blue region with the city Dnipropetrovsk. Hope this helps you to see it.

18 days till.....we travel!!

Yep that's right. 18 days till we leave and I'm not packed....the girls room isn't ready and the bank won't give us our money.....I should be stressed but I'm trying not to be. I'm sure God will work it out...that I know he can do. He cares for the details. He has raised the money....we will get there. IT will work out. In the mean time.....DID you all see that AIDEN has a mama? Who is Aiden? Well he is 4 years old, blind and lives near the orphanage that the girls are in. At one time I think they were probably in the same one. HE is very delayed but he is also not allowed to do much and there are no resources to get him out and about. His family is working hard to get him you can read their story on their blog www.ourfamilyhisway.blogspot.com

God is the greatest miracle worker!!

God is working some miracles for us. I can't go into the explanation right now but just know he is alive and very present in this world. He works miracles when you didn't even know to ask for them. AMEN!

Groundhogs day

We leave on Groundhog's day. WE r busy getting the house ready and packing and asking others questions of stuff I should've asked before but didn't. We are also trading rooms around the house to make space for everyone. There is so much to do now that we know when we r going. Hopefully soon I will have more to tell everyone.

Bittersweet Beginnings

Well we have a date at the DAP in Eastern Europe on 2/4. I was super excited yesterday when Nancy pinged me on Facebook and told me to go look for it. There it was in my SPAM folder!! Yea!! I excitedly called Chet who then freaked. I guess he was thinking we had time we didn't need to plan. But the reality is we have a month. Then we go. His what if's are swirling. Mine are settled..it is what it is ....no use worrying about the what if's. We will know when we get there. I booked the flights today....$4000.00 cha-ching That should cover all of them unless I fly back after court during the 10 day wait. Already the money goes so fast. All our hard work and now onto the planning phase. I guess I would have liked Chet to be more excited. To have made all the plans...to be packed and have the emails printed but I cant change him. I pray that he comes along beside me and that God settles his nerves.
