Kviv

Sorry I haven't been able to blog!

Today is my last day here in Ukraine. I can't believe this part of the journey is almost over, though in many ways it is just beginning.

We've had some tough times.






We've had some fun times!








We've tried new things.








We've made new friends.








We've learned to be resourceful.


We've learned to be strong.




We've seen many beautiful places.








Tomorrow, on my favorite son's 17th birthday, the United States will have two new citizens!


Cover your ears everyone, here we come!

  18. My daughter just asked me if I remembered when you posted that they couldn't tell where Francesca was, and how terrifying that was. I am so glad for you that the long road is almost done, and you will be home and safe. I know you still have a lot to do, mostly alone, to get home, and then you will have a lot of medical things to do ... we won't forget to keep praying. Girl, you are one of my most awesome heroes. And doing it all with such a smile and with grace.

  21. I hear (from another blog) that you're home. You must be exhausted, from all the time alone with your 2 new little girls. I hope you will be able to get some rest...really ....you need it! Also praying for Victoria-may God build her little body up quickly and I will also pray for the doctors for wisdom. Greetings from South Africa
