Tomorrow at 8:00 am EST and 3:00 PM local time!

We have our exact appointment time!

It is tomorrow at 0800 EST and 1500 local time.

What will happen is that we will make the five minute walk from our apartment to the SDA for our appointment. Our facilitator and translator will accompany us to the appointment. We will meet with an English translator and the SDA psychologist for 1 hour. The psychologist will have matched us with 4-10 sibling groups (on 39 areas of compatibility)

They may ask us different questions about why we want to adopt from Ukraine and why we want to adopt 3? Why we want to have such a big family?

We will scroll through the files and be told about each group and have time to ask questions and seek clarification. From what we are told this is strictly one hour and then we will have to choose. The magnitude of this decision will be life altering for us, for these children, and for the children we cannot take. The stakes are great and the pressure will be intense.

Please pray for us and all the children we will be discussing tomorrow.

Thanks,

Steve

Thanks Steve for this blog. What a big decision you will be making today. I can't wait to hear about your children. Praying that God will guide your every move and word, that you will have his wisdom as you make this choice, and for your guidance and safety through this whole time.
Love,
