Back to my story.... I was meeting a friend for breakfast this morning and showed up to the restaurant early and had a conversation with the restaurant owner. We were talking about the adoption process and started talking about Ukraine. He told me that he was aware of a family that had ties to Ukraine through their church and I should call them. So, he gave me this family's info and I phoned them this afternoon. Not only did this guy know about Ukraine, he was leaving tomorrow for Ukraine on a missionary trip and best yet, we're related. It's amazing how things happen and how we are met to meet people. This seems like a real reminder that we are on track with this adoption process. I was so worried about English tutoring living in the small community that we do. This family has a young woman who is from Ukraine living with them while she attends the University to obtain her Master's Degree. She is looking for some part-time work -- perfect.... we now will have someone to tudor.
I continue to think of those who are stressed about their submissions and those that thought they were submitted to find out they weren't and need to get things updated. I believe we need to look at the things that drive us to make the decisions that we do. Two weeks ago, we thought we were toast. Today, we have optimism. I won't believe this whole thing will happen until I'm on my way back to the States with a child in hand. Until then, it's a crap shoot. So, please realize that you are not alone!
Until next time, Heather
