One year ago today...

On October 14, 2010 our dossier was successfully submitted to the SDA in Ukraine. We thought that meant the paperwork part of the process was over! Hahahahahaha!! Little did we know that would be nearly ALL we did while in Ukraine besides walking 4 miles daily for our 2 visits at the orphanage with Mariah.

Sometimes it seems like its been years since we did all of that and some days it seems like it was yesterday. We had a whirlwind of a time in Ukraine, but God was there providing a way for us the entire time. I have never felt faith like I had while we were adopting Mariah. I saw a quote by Steve Jobs that said, "You can't connect the dots looking forwards. You can only connect them looking back." That sums up Mariah's adoption. There were so many things that we asked "WHY? WHY? God?" along the way, but looking back it was all part of the dots that led us to her.

So that being said, today was the perfect day to end our Kindle giveaway. I will be annoucing a winner later today!

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
