We have been blessed with two special daughters and two sons from Eastern Europe. We welcome you to follow our journey as a family of five, waiting to travel and pick up #6, with the ins and outs of family, education, farm life, and love!

New day, new country

Today we took another leap of faith. We officially have committed to another little girl that we hope to make a part of our family. Her name is 'M'. She will be 3 in February. Unlike our princess we had hoped to bring home, M does not have DS. M has CP, much like what Hannah has.

We received lots of pictures. I am so impressed with the care she is getting at the baby house. She is receiving therapy and stimulation on a continued basis. Now all she needs is the continued love of a forever family. We hope to fill that void in this little one's life!

We are excited to travel to another country. Still in eastern Europe, but closer to Italy than Russia. The stay in the country sounds much shorter too. When we went to Ukraine to adopt, we were there 42 days (ask Jen, she knows the number exactly! so do I!) From the sounds of the process in the country we will travel to bring M home, we will be there around 2 weeks! Wow!

So once again, start the paper trail! maybe we'll have a summer vacation in Eastern Europe this summer!

Congrat's on your commitment to bring Melanie home. We are in E.E. now. We have seen your little girl. She seems very sweet and is very pretty. I got to hold her hand and talk to her for a few minutes, while she was in her crib. I will see if i can get some pictures. Jody
