Well, as much as we had hoped everything could be accomplished before Ukraine shuts down for months, it looks like it is impossible. The dossier would have to be sent out by next week and that just can't happen. We have done everything humanly possible.....there are just factors out of our control! We trust God has a plan for the timing of everything : )
Some good news is that Reece's Rainbow has told us that this particular orphanage keeps the kids there until the age of 6. So even though Julia will be 4 next month, she will stay put! Yay!! They have also told us that the orphanage "most certainly knows we are coming for her."
We are also encouraged that another family adopting two boys from the same room Julia is in, will be over there before the holidays. They will be able to see how she is doing and maybe get some more pictures for us!!
