Tomorrow is our SDA appointment at 9:00am. We are praying that they will have our referral to see Lucy later that afternoon. They usually do NOT give referrals the same day. Everything is done manually, no computers, all I can kind of understand that it's not necessarily easy for them. BUT, with GOD, anything is possible. If we do not get our referral in the late afternoon on the same day (Friday), we will most likely not be able to see her until Wednesday of next week...we will have to stay in Kiev for 5 days waiting. Yes, this is notoriously called the "waiting game". Nothing has gone quickly for us in this process. We committed to Lucy at the end of September. So if we could speed up our process toward the end of this long journey, that would be wonderful. I'm not expecting it, but I am praying for it. Please pray for us as well if you wouldn't mind. I would love to see her sooner rather than later. Tuesday is a holiday here in the please please Lord, give us that referral on Friday...all for your Glory, Amen.

Other than that, the milk is awful and our toilet doesn't work...but I'm on the same soil as my future daughter, and for that, I'm grateful.

And missing Ragen immensely...


  1. Praying specifically that God's Hand will swiftly move every piece of paperwork through! May HIS peace be yours! Love and hugs! xoxo

  2. Praying that all goes smoothly and you get your referral tomorrow and can go to region over the weekend and meet her.

  3. What is with these toilets over there? Heard something similar from Lisa W. . . oh wait, that was the washer or the shower or both.

    Praying like crazy over here. Anything is possible. Keep the faith for we have seen miracles and I know that Lucy will be one of them!

  4. Praying for God to cover EVERYTHING! Miss the cyber-friend kinda

  5. praying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    good luck!
