Two Down -- One to Go!

Yesterday was the second appointment and it did not work out. We will be granted one more appointment before the process is over. Yesterday we were shown a lot of files. All but 2, the children were very sick! The remaining two just didn't seem like a good fit. We have petitioned for a third appointment that will be either Thursday or Monday of next week. Please continue to pray that this works out for us. I'm not feeling well and want more than anything to come home. I've managed to catch the worst cold I've ever had. Jim and I both agree that we've gone too far to turn back now. Thanks much for following along. Hopefully, next time I will be able to provide some better news. Until then, Heather

Heather & Jim, I want to find some words to comfort you. Just know that I am thinking of you (thought a total stranger) and am hoping for the best possible outcome for you.

All I can think to say is this, something my friend's grandmother says: Hope gets us to the bridge, faith gets us across. Love and hugs, Julie

I know this is a "leap" and chances are small, but if your faciltater has any influence, ask for a referral in Mariupol-it's supposedly the most friendly region to work with. And yes, I know "asking" is inappropriate, but its not inappropriate to ask your facilitater and get his/her take. Sometimes all it takes is a small, well placed "suggestion". At the time, it was also culturally "inappropriate" to call onesself the, "...Messiah...". For what it's worth...Matt

I am so sorry to hear of all the trouble you guys are having. It seems several other families are running into the same problems you are. I pray your next visit will be "the" visit for you.
