I wanted to give an update on my parents. For those of you who don't know, they are currently in Ukraine adopting 5 children. Yes, five =) You can read more on their story here.
So far, things have gone really smoothly. The region of Ukraine they are in is very modern and we have enjoyed being able to stay much more connected through email, blogs, and even skype. They will be bringing home 5 new children, 3 girls and 2 boys...ranging in age from 8 to 15. I have seen pictures and they are beautiful! As soon as I can I will try to post some pictures here.
We are praying hard that they are in the "home stretch" and will hopefully be returning home in less than 2 weeks. A lot has to happen before we will know for sure, so keep praying!
Below is an excerpt from my moms blog about a recent outing they were able to make with the kids:
We took all the kids - 5 and Ben to see Kung Fu Panda in Ukrainian, McDonalds for lunch and then we went clothes shopping--- We spent alot of money today but it was fun. Watching the older girls in a store choosing their own things was priceless. Since we were not sure of exactly who we were adopting we were not able to buy any clothes before hand... hence we outfitted for Kiev and flight home 5 kiddos. Oh how wonderful that sounds--- flight home!
I laughed about the shopping part...sounds like those girls will fit right in at home=) I can't wait to meet them!
