Taking that step...

The last several days I have been organizing pictures of Mariah and taking a few new ones. She really loved her friends and 2 caretakers at the orphanage and she was super excited about sending them pictures of her walking! She posed at the park, the pool, and stood in the yard by herself so she could show "Lula" how BIIIG and STROOONG she is now.

Today we mailed the package of pictures (and other documents that shall remain a secret for now!) to a friend who is traveling to Kyiv in one week for their SDA appointment.

This saves me like $80 on FedEx!

I took the time to use google translate and handwrote captions in Russian on the back of some of the photos for Mariah's friends and for "Lula."

The other documents that were included in that package are our newest leap of faith. I rather like going up against all odds because that way when the impossible happens, you know its God and you know its what you're supposed to do.

Faith isn't something you just have. Its something that you DO.

Don't expect miracles if you don't place yourself in need of one.

LOVE your comment at the end, Amen to that!



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
