We made it through Russian immigration! We have sailed through every obstacle! We have angels at our side. Even little things have fallen into place.
For example, at the airport, the girls both had bad diarrhea and before we even got on our flight, we had gone through all the baby wipes. We still had hours and hours to go with no baby wipes! What were we to do? The out of the blue, a little old lady who does not speak any English suddenly handed Melinda a package of baby wipes. How did she know? Why did she have baby wipes? Obviously she was an angel on earth. We have had lots of these angels (both seen and unseen) on our journey. Thank you to all of them! Thank you to those who prayed for us, contributed financially, helped put on fundraisers, spread the word about our girls, and more! We very literally could not have done this adoption alone. Impossible. But with God and His angels, ANYTHING is possible. You have been part of a miracle! And there are two little girls who are ORPHANS NO MORE!!
A special thank you to the Reeces Rainbow family! www.reecesrainbow.org Without them we would have never found our girls. Without them we would have never had the funds to adopt them. Without them, we would not have had the courage, support and knowlege to complete this journey. Thank you!
A special thank you to WACAP, our adoption agency www.wacap.org. They are putting special needs orphans first and creating families and miracles every day!
And most of all thank you to those who supported our adoption and were encouraging to us. We had so many people be discouraging and try to tear us down. It is because of the love and support of dear friends and family members who believed in us that we were able to follow the Lord's call and adopt these divine girls!
They are HUGE blessings in our lives. They have the most amazing personalities and are such adorable additions! We cannot imagine our family without them now. As a good friend once said, children with Down Syndrome are the sprinkles on the cupcake of life.
