About Us

Hattiesburg, MS, United States
We are a really average family that just can't get over that we have been adopted by an extraordinary God! We are excited and expectant as the journey to enlarge our family unfolds before us.

I have not posted in a few days because there is not much noteworthy to report. We are hanging in there. We are getting to the end of our 10-day wait. Things are progressing well. Nothing unexpected in the process. We are really enjoying Nastia. We are seeing a little more of her personality all the time. She has relaxed a lot since court. Many more smiles, and we are even getting some “I love you”’s in English! Now that will melt a Momma and Daddy’s heart!. We can tell that she is getting anxious to get on with things too, but for different reasons. I asked her a couple of nights ago how things were with her friends, and the look on her face needed no translation. It’s tough! On the one hand she want to spend as much time as she can with the girls she has been living with for the past couple of years, and I know they are happy for her, but there is also some tension. She is also going to miss her sister. We hope to see her in the next several days....

We pick up our court decree Monday, and then the fun starts! Please pray with us that we can complete the birth certificate and passport process next week. That way we will be on schedule to be coming come on Feb 2!
