At this time John and I have decided to adopt an older unknown child--- keyword older. We will most likely not be adopting a child listed on Reece's Rainbow like we did with Alex and Dennis-- this time we are venturing out into the unknown. More like an adventure that we can't wait to see where God takes us. There is a region or two that we would love to adopt from, but only time will tell if that is where we will end up.
We are planning on taking our beautiful Ukrainian born daughter Rachel (age 14) who is jumping out of her seat with excitement at the mere thought of traveling back to her birth country. Bless her heart--- she wants to start knitting scarves like Julia did last time so that she can help earn her own plane ticket. So, she wanted me to ask if any of you are in need of scarves, blankets or anything knitted for that matter. Julia has offered to crochet too! :)
We are nearly done with our homestudy update-- who knew a new social worker could be such a blessing) and would love for us to be able to travel this summer. That is ideal since the kids are out of school-- but we will have to just wait and see.
Though you might think that we are fairly familiar with what to expect and how the process goes, we are pretty certain there will be many surprises along the way. Aren't there always in the world of adoption?
Happy 13th Birthday, Adelise!
