We received an email last night from Amanda (our agency coordinator). As of right now (always possibility of change again), it sounds as if the Ukraine parliament may not vote on adoption legislation until after the new year! We anticipate our court date in December so hope to be wrapping up our process and travels by that time.
Thank you for everyone who has uplifted us in prayers. They have made such a huge difference - even before we received this email. I was able to calm down, have a little peace, and remember that God is in control. I know that He loves our little one even more than we do (which is really quite a bit - lol!) and wants forever families for every orphan.
I ask that you continue to pray because even though this vote most likely will not affect us, it will affect others. And while I am glad that we are able to breathe a little easier, I hate to think of other families feeling the way that we have over the past week.
Hope to have a few fun things to share about getting our little one's room ready soon! Hard to believe that in just over a week, we will be on our way!
