Well three years ago tonight was when we made it home from Ukraine. How ironic! And two years ago Sam and I arrived home on May 9th from our emergency NY trip for his eye.
This is what I wrote on FB tonight
Three years ago tonight we made it home from Ukraine with our precious daughters. I can still remember how RELEIVED I was to put them in their cribs that night. So thankful I took these pictures....it was worth it all, every penny spent, every mile flown, driven or on a train to get to them, every inconvenience, every fear, every doubt and every worry. God brought these two girls home to our family and now when days are long, and there are other worries and concerns, I nev...er doubt that God will somehow see our family through. These pictures are a testimony to a faithful God who does not forget the fatherless, the ones deemed unlovable, the child hidden away in an adult mental institution. God still knew their names and cared for them. I'm so thankful that He gave us the guts to go and get them and I'd encourage anyone reading this post to never be afraid to step out and do the right thing, the thing that God puts on your heart to do. There is suffering in this world, but God can enable you to take away some of it if you will be open and listen to that nudge from the Lord. I love these girls, obviously I did not know what the future held ahead for us, but God is still good and He's still faithful.
