Referral - AGAIN - Back to 2 kiddies!

We received a referral for 2 little angels in the Kotlas area of Arkhangel'sk!
We got the referral last Thursday and haven't posted anything about it because we wanted to wait until we had travel dates (we didn't want to jinx it!).

It's a boy and a girl - we're sooooo excited!! Can this dream be real?? After a year and a half of being paper pregnant, we finally get to see the ultrasound, live!
We leave on July 19 and return July 26.

We can't wait to meet these little munchkins - Oh my gosh, we leave in 3 weeks!!

Please keep us in your prayers as we take this whirlwind trip. Thanks!
Woooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooo!!!

Hey Jane, I haven't been to your blog in a while and decided to check the progress of the adoption... I guess I checked in at a good time. I am so happy for you. CONGRATULATIONS. We have good friends that adopted 2 from Russia also. They are beautiful and I know yours will be too. They will change your life in an unbelievable way. We will be praying for you and the children. I will pass the word to the rest of the family here.
