Earlier this year we were so blessed to receive a Christian Orphan Fund grant in order to adopt a little boy from Ukraine. 3 weeks before we traveled we found out he was no longer available for adoption.  After much prayer, we decided to adopt another little boy in Ukraine.  We wound up spending 2 months in-country because of delays that occurred during the Ukrainian Revolution. And then, we came home with TWO boys instead of one.

Adam and Asher in the orphanage during their first meeting:

Asher (on the left) is 4.5 years old now and weighs 28 pounds. Up a little more than 10 pounds from when he arrived home. Adam (right) is 2.5 years old now and has gained 10 pounds since arriving home.

These boys have gone from an institution to a family. And it has been such a blessing to us and our other children. Thank you so much for all you have done for us in enabling these boys to join our family!
