Day 8 - Court :O/

This is little Bohdan's hand. How cute?! I love baby hands!!

Mommy and Bohdan self portrait. He was very tired at our visit today if you can't tell by his eyes. :O) We mostly just cuddled. he played drop the ball a little and played 'fluid' on our phones some but overall was subdued. He is a sweetie!

"I'm tired mommy" oh my baby! So cute!

Drop the ball! Yea!!!

Yuri ABSOLUTELY loved when I would jump him in the air! Yippee!

"Whatcha doing Daddy?" Mr. precious.

Fluid. It is an app where it looks like water so when you touch it it makes ripples.
Bohdan loves it!
Attack of the monkey!!

Oh friends, these babies have stolen my heart and I am SO in love with them. We have a court date of January 5th. We were hoping for a sooner court date but with it being around the holidays it looks like we won't be able to have court until after the first of the year. Our facilitation team is absolutely fabulous!! I feel as though they cry every tear with me. They are doing everything in their power to make sure that these boys become Winkles!! I love Tatianna and Valentin more than words can describe and I hope that I convey that to them. The thought of not seeing or having contact with them after our adoption is terrible. I love them so!

Please pray that we can have court sooner and secure their adoption! Bohdan and Yuri are such sweeties and as I'm sure you can tell they want a mommy and daddy to play with and love on them!


  1. IF court is the 5th will you be staying in country? Or leaving and returning? So hard! Praying for you guys

  2. I am so glad for Yuri and Bohgad. God bless you! Will be praying for you.

  3. Standing with you and trusting, my friend.

    God is more than able!

    Oh my goodness....did you really escape from the zoo room?????

    Hug those beauties for me.

  4. Praying!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. We had Tatianna and Valentin as well!! They were GREAT!!! Please tell them the Evans family says hello! (Laurel)

    Also, ask for her email address b/c we have emailed back and forth several times since we have been home.

  6. Beautiful pictures - yes you can feel your love for these boys through the pictures. So good to see you today. So sad to hear of the delays. Just remember in eternity, these couple weeks will seem like nothing. Anything we can do in the meantime, let us know.

    Praying for you and the boys - from Tom and Caleb

  7. Well, I'm glad you have a date actually set. I know you'd hoped for sooner. May God sustain you all during the wait.

  8. Praying for you friends!!!! All the time!!!!!!!

  9. Yay babies! praying for you and your boys \0/

  10. Seeing those boys in your arms is beautiful. I can tell by their pictures that it is so necessary for them to get out asap.

    Praying for you, for them, and for eyes to be open to the blessings of children in their midst.
