We had our appointment for the second referral lat this afternoon. We have requested a chance to visit with a boy who is 14, he will be 15 next month. He lives in a part of Ukraine I have never been to before, so I am excited about getting to see more of this beautiful country.
If all goes well, we should be able to pick up our referral papers tomorrow afternoon and ride the overnight train tomorrow night. When we went by the ticket office after our appointment today they did not have any tickets available on tomorrow night's train. Please pray for tickets so we can go to the region where the boy is located and that we will be able to visit with him on Wednesday.
We have been told by someone close to him that he definitely wants a family and that he would love a chance to join our family in America. Please pray that God's will is done, and if it is God's will that this is for certain the boy we are here to adopt that he will know it in his heart and I will know he is my son as soon as we meet.
Thank you so much for your support, encouragement, and prayers.
