Posted on December 31, 2014The news we have been waiting for is here!!!
During the month of December, a handful of families adopting kids from Sergii's same war-torn region have received their referrals and some have even passed court already.
This is amazing news! This means that we can now officially move forward with Sergii's adoption.
The only thing is that our documents have expired and we need to do them over. We have learned a lot about the Ukrainian adoption process, and have already traveled to Ukraine and asked for Sergii's referal which is a little easier than starting from nothing. But as far as paperwork goes, we are literally starting from scratch. Everything has to be redone... homestudy, USCIS approval, fingerprints (4 sets each,) medical exams, bloodwork, dossier, passport renewals, etc. Because we are starting over, the cost for the adoption has greatly increased.
We are so anxious to get moving and bring him home, but the lack of funds is holding us back. We are humbly asking you, friends and family, and anyone who wants to help an orphan join his forever family, to please donate toward Sergii's adoption. Any amount will help.
We know there are many of you who have fallen in love with Sergii and are following our journey closely. We appreciate all of the prayers, well wishes, and donations you have made, as well as your patience with us for continuing to ask for help. Having your friendship and support along the way is priceless.
I cannot wait for the day that we are celebrating his homecoming with all of you, near and far, who have supported us in some way.
