One of our most favorite families ever that we met through adoption in Ukraine has got to be the Halls. We were disappointed when we missed them at the LifeLine gathering, but were thrilled that they would drive nearly 2 hours each way to visit us at the end of the missions festival in Birmingham.
When Jason and Mel initially made the trip to Ukraine, they included their son Grant. What a creative young man! Some of you may recall posts of mine during that time frame when Grant read a book that he had written in the style of Dr. Seuss.
What a surprise to discover that Inna doesn’t remember Russian or Ukrainian, but how fun to see her eyes light up when she actually DID understand something spoken to her in Russian. And Vitalik? Well, he only stayed still long enough for the picture — all boy!
Please continue to pray for families in the midst of adoption, and please continue to pray for them once they’ve returned home. The roller coaster ride does not necessarily end when the families leave Ukraine…
