First of all, the baby’s little heart was operated on successfully at a hospital in Ukraine. Praise God! All the little bumps in the road leading up to the adoption have been smoothed, and these beautiful children are no longer orphans! As of September 8th, it’s official: Masha and Autumn (you knew them as Malory and Peach) have been adopted and will be coming home to America with their new family!
It has not been a quick process. They have been in Ukraine for over a month, away from their other three children. Now, just as everything is in line for them to (finally!) come home, baby Autumn has been hospitalized with a (hopefully mild) illness and they will have to wait until she is healthy again to come home.
God has moved mountains to get them this far! And I know He will bring them home soon. But it’s got to be tough for them right now…Let’s pray them the rest of the way home! Please pray that Autumn recovers quickly and completely, and that the rest of their journey to bring these precious babies home is totally uneventful.
And thank you, thank you for your prayers and help. Your prayers and donations have been a blessing and an important part of their story! Oh, what a joy to see….
Peace and safety in her mother’s embrace.
