Much needed Update

Hi everyone, well there is so much to tell but to make things short our dossier is in Ukraine as we speak and we are preparing for travel within the next month. We are very excited. We were able to speak with Sasha on Monday morning and it was so great to hear his little voice. I will try to be more consistent with my Blog. so everyone will know whats going on. Thanks for supporting us. Love, Beth , Mike, Justin and Luke P.S Luke was in his first dog show yesterday, he did great. He showed our 10 year old Standard Poodle, Collins, at the national specialty show, it was very exciting and he won a 2nd place ribbon, he was so proud and said"I worked so hard for this"!!! I was very proud of him and his big brother Justin for being so supportive and putting up with a long ride to Maryland

Great Day!!

Hello everyone, today we had our first homestudy meeting with the social worker and things went great. We will have our next and last meeting next Thursday and then within a week after that our homestudy should be all complete. Wow, what a blessing to be able to have our homestudy done so quickly.
I need to say thank you already to all the wonderful people who have already helped us with our fundraiser. Your generousity amazes me and we can't thank you enough. God is truly looking down on us. Please feel free to post us a comment when you log on to our blog. I would love to hear from everyone who is following our journey. Well we'll keep you posted on how things are going. Love, Beth and Family

Ready, Set, Go!!!!

Well, its official, we have submitted our paperwork to start our homestudy. Yeah!!! The first huge step in this adoption journey. I have already spoken to our social worker today and scheduled our first meeting on Wednesday. We are very excited and a little nervous too. Our goal is to have our homestudy finished and hopefully our immigration paperwork all ready to submit by January. We will do our best to keep everyone posted as to how everything is going along the way. Another hosting family is over in Ukraine right now and they will be able to visit with Sasha and are bringing him a gift from us. I can't wait to see the pictures of him. We miss him so much. Well thats all for now. Thanks everyone for your prayers and blessing, Beth and Family
