We had a long talk (via google translate) with her last night where my wife and I were pretty much the only ones talking. We asked if she wanted us to come to Ukraine and get her. She said no. So that's the end of that. Thanks for your prayers and words of encouragement. DW and I are doing fine. I'm not sad at all- in fact I'm relieved that after 5 months of wondering, we at least have an answer and can now think about other things.

Oh yeah- if you want details and pictures, my wife kept a blog. www.themoretheperryer.blogspot.com
So sorry to hear this didn't work out. From what I've read on here from you and just now reading your wifes blog this sounds like it has been a very trying and confusing couple of weeks or even months. The fact that you even put yourselves out there is very admirable. I hope that you can find peace in the decision.

Sorry to hear that, Chris. I know this has been in the works for a long time and you were excited about it. But if she doesn't want to be there, then it's the only possible outcome. I hope she'll be ok. And I know better days are ahead for you.

You're right. I need to give him several forms to fill out in triplicate.

Indeed. The girl is in a tough spot no matter what. While I think she made the wrong decision, it's her decision. On the bright side, there's still time to get my money back on Rosetta Stone! Considering I just dropped a sizable sum of $$ on a 10-day non-expiring parkhopper, I think I'll return it.

Sorry to hear that Chris. As others have said, it's got to be quite confusing for a 14 year old girl to visit another country and another family and grasp the fact that they want you to live with them and be your family. Something good will come from this, you just need to have a little faith.

I assume as an honorary state worker, there will be someone else I can pass this menial task on to, right?

Read your wife's blog and very sorry that it didn't happen. Your family's compassion and caring is admirable. I hope the best for her.

Nem, saw your meetup on facebook for the half; Not sure how many of us are doing the full, but let me know when you're in the bag drop area for the full if you want to meet up quick. What corral are you in?

Chris...I am so sorry to hear this!!! Those of us who have adopted know how the process is a roller coaster of emotions and we all fear the outcome that has come to be for you guys. Sure will be pryaing for you. God has a mighty plan in store for you...this heartbreak is going to prepare you in some way for what God has ahead!! Is adoption something you think you will attempt again?

That would be late.


It was a great day for the drive, highway was bare and the sun was shining.

Shortly after we got here we sent DS to his cousins for the night and now we are just relaxing after dinner. I'm sure there will be some card playing in our near future.

Pain and most swelling is gone. Just still have the firmness of the gland now. I will call them next week if it is still there or swells more. Wish it would go away.
