Amazing Race Part 2
Team Nadia started off this morning at 7:45am. We had Nadia's medical clearance and received her visa by11:00am. We have completed all the requirements related to Nadia's adoption!!! In 19 days!!! Wow!!!
A friend that we have made while in Ukraine said this evening that it is so evident that God has blessed each step of our adoption process. She has been with us most of time and has witnessed God at work. Our journey has been a testimony to her of God's grace and faithfulness.
We were anxious this afternoon about our flight schedule for coming home. We had scheduled our departure date for October 15th before we came to Ukraine. Even though we have had an amazing time in Ukraine we are ready to come home especially to see our kids. We are so glad to say that we have a flight from Kiev to London Saturday afternoon and will spend a couple of days in London due to lack of available flights. We will arrive back in Dallas on Monday.
A huge thankful to all of our prayer warriors!!! Your prayers have been felt. I (Darrin) believe that this journey to adopt Nadia has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I am so grateful that we stepped out in faith and pursued this opportunity.
We had our last dinner in Kiev tonight at a great Ukrainian restaurant. On our way back to the apartment, Nadia could not stop smiling, laughing and even skipping. She is so excited that the process is over and she will be coming home.
As Hope's Journey is coming to a close... Hope's Story is just beginning!!! It is going to be one amazing story that only God could create. We are thankful that He has chosen us to be a part of it.
