I am at the internet cafe with Noel and she says DaDaDa (yes yes yes) Barbies!!! We are getting excited to travel to Odessa to get their passports. They miss everyone and can't wait to see the family and friends they did not meet while spending time with us. We appreciate everyone's prayers. It means so much to have good friends and family going to God on our behalf. When I get discouraged I just think that God has not let us down so far and that if we just give him total control he will work out all the details. Maybe that is what God has been trying to teach me (Chris) at least.
I keep everyone at home in my prayers. It feels like we have been gone for soo long. We would like to have a party eventually to celebrate our new family of 6 when we get home. The girls can't wait to get to school and want to spend some time with Mackenzie Skeens. They have picked her out of pix and seem to be drawn to her. (You go Girl!!!). So if anyone sees Sammie or Kim let them know we will be sending the kids over soon!! :0.
Three more days to go until we travel. People ask if we will come back to Kotovsk but we do not think so. There are some others issues I will discuss when I arrive home but not here and not right now. I have little eyes watching.
Well take care everyone we are off to the market, paper store, clothing store and where ever else we can spend time. Blessing from two Kochanek Girls Chris and Noel
Oh Ted wanted to let you know I took out the teeth candy you sent because of all the rumors going around the orphanage that Americans were adopting and cutting up the kids. I figured that would not go over well. The girls ate the candy at the flat just not all the kids.
