An unexpected announcement

Adopting from Ukraine is well... unpredictable.

Due to some information we found out about one of our boys, it was very quickly deemed in everyone's best interest that we host D again this summer.  We weren't planning on hosting because we are planning to be in Ukraine shortly after summer ends... however life doesn't always go according to plan.

Other than the cost involved, we are very happy we will get to see our oldest boy again sooner than we thought.  This will probably end up being a good thing all the way around.  D will be able to learn more English and bond with us over the longer summer hosting period without having any extra competition for attention from his younger brothers.

We have already been fundraising for our adoption fees so there won't be any big fundraiser for this, but if you feel led to donate towards our (unexpected) hosting fee you can make a Paypal donation to PJOHNSON05@msn.com.  The amount we need to raise for hosting is currently $2100  $1855.

Please keep us and our boys in your prayers.
We know God has this too. 

You can make a donation to our PayPal account if you feel led to help us raise the host fees!

I've been following your story ever since I read about it in the Mulligan Stew giveaway. I'm so happy you're going to host again! I guess that is sort of like having him sooner, right? Anyway, could you share how old your new boys are? Just curious! ;)

Hi Carolina,

I'm so glad you are following us :) Our new boys are currently 10, 8, 6, and 1. Yes, hosting is sort of like having him sooner... of course there is always more to the story than I put on the blog, but having him here is definitely a good thing.

Thanks for answering! Yeah, I guess you can't share everything at least until they're yours forever. I hope you get them soon. Good luck! :)

So exciting!!!

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
