December 1st!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....well, not here but it is cold! We look forward to Christmas at home with Marina Joy who will be celebrating her first Christmas with us. What a day that will be!! We got to Skype today to our friend Alexandra who was adopted from here and she got to say "previat" to her friends. One of the girls here was in tears at the end. They are a family here and miss one another. The workers were all very happy to see Alexandra in her new home with her family. Her parents are doing such a wonderful job with her! Want to post a few pictures of Marina here. In a few of them she is trying on her new clothes. Thank you Charity!!! They fit beautifully. She is good in a size 6 even though here I see she's wearing a 5. Well, the other day a boy named Vanya, like our boy, was wearing pink patent leather shoes so it's whatever fits I guess. We are enjoying our time with one another and with the kids here. Please continue to pray for a speedy process! It keeps me up nights just thinking about it! All in all we are fine. Ben is going home today perhaps and we are so thrilled about that. Thanks for your prayers and love.
Goodnight to all!


  1. I am so happy for you and little Marina!!! I can't believe it is actually happening!! How exciting that you were able to Skype with Alexandria!! The girls must have been thrilled! Let's pary that Tatiana registers more of the children for adoptions so there can be losts more happy endings!!! God Bless you!!! Give my love to all!!!
