We Have Regrouped and Are Moving Forward

We were down but never out. Ukraine will have to wait for us. We may go back in the future for an older child (I wonder how many kids I can convince my husband to adopt?). We are switching gears (can you hear them?). We are looking into Kyrgyzstan. We are currently checking out agencies. We signed up for the Kyrgyzstan adoption board and the Agency Research Board (boy, do I hate to have to use an agency). The people and the children are beautiful. The process does not sound corrupt at all, which is very important to us. Kyrgyzstan is south of Kazakstan, east of China, north of Tajikistan and west of Uzbekistan.

Will write more about the country later. I hope to get a map of the country posted today.

I'm so glad you have surfaced, and with such wonderful news. :)

We used an agency, and it was a good experience for us.

Best wishes in moving forward.

So glad to hear you have another plan in place! I hope this route goes as smoothly as possible!!!

Great news! I've continued to pray for you, and I'm so glad to hear from you again! Kyrgyzstan. This will be such an interested journey to watch (if you'll let us)--as I've never known of anyone to adopt from there. Wow, you are really persevering--that's awesome. I'm excited to see how God provides for you.

I'm so glad you're not letting Ukraine win. I can't wait to hear about the process and everything else!

Rita & Drew,
You are awesome! I'm thrilled to hear that you've had a little time to regroup and redirect your efforts.

If you decide to write about the journey on your blog, we'll be cheering you on!!!

Happy Easter!
So glad you have found a new direction! As one who has used an agency and won't go again without, not all are terrible :) You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers!
