Good news and bad news...

I should really say, good news and sad news.
I will start with the sad news. We found out that Valya is not going to be able to come and spend Christmas with our family this year. We found out this past week that they were not able to get the Visas approved for the kids with some crazy stuff that is going on in Ukraine. I was waiting to post until we had more details, but I still don't have those. We know that there will be an opportunity this summer to host a child (which still could be Valya or Ivan) if we choose to do that. We will pray, and we will see.
We know that God always has a plan, and he showed us once again that he knows best. The morning after we found out that Valya was not coming, we found out that (surprise!!) WE ARE PREGNANT with another sweet baby. We think we are due around August 11th, but we should know more as we get further along in the pregnancy. I know that this is an important time to not have too much stress, craziness, etc. going on, and I was definitely stressing a little bit getting everything perfect for Valya's visit.
That is all the news for now...we had our first family Christmas event yesterday, so I will be posting pictures soon!


  1. Wow! So sorry about the hosting issues. I am still trying to understand what is going on and when I met K a few days ago I can tell he is absolutely exhausted trying to make it all work.

    Very excited about the new baby coming soon!!!

  2. Congratulations on the baby news! What a blessing!
