Spaciba

Wow! All I can is wow! You guys are all so terrific. Thank you for all of your encouraging comments on my last post. Thank you for all of the personal emails. Even though there are no guarantees until we actually travel to Ukraine and receive Dennis's referral, I feel that with all of your prayers, it is certain. How can it not be?

Our donations are up to $620 now. Isn't that just amazing? I think that covers the cost of his plane ticket home. People we don't even know have stepped forward to help out financially, and I can't even begin to express how thankful John and I are. You guys have such big hearts and I want to say thanks for investing in Dennis's future. As I am sure you already know, you are investing in a little boy that is so deserving....... if he only knew how many people were working towards getting him home. I am sure he would say Spaciba if he could talk. :)

I look forward to sharing more about our journey.

Later when I have time, I will share some wonderful things about Dennis. Another family who traveled to his orphanage earlier this month to adopt two children has shared some very special things about him. What a blessing to be able to learn all about little Dennis through this other family.

I'm just finding a moment to catch up on your Ukraine blog. How exciting for you and your family! I clicked over and read about Dennis and the other children there. It breaks my heart, but he will be coming home soon. Have you taken his photo and information to a doctor? Do you know if they will be able or to what extent they can reconstruct his eye and face? I want to know exactly how I should be praying!!!

How exciting! I need to go catch up and learn about Dennis. I haven't been able to follow along too much since I have been in Ukraine, but I am going to go read now! How awesome that you have gotten $620 in donations. I hope much more comes so that it lessens the burden. Slava Bogu! So glad you were able to get in touch with a family that has met him. That is such a blessing. I always love it when someone travels and can tell me how Grisha is.
