Worth it all!

Most of you have seen the pictures of the three little guys that we're adopting. These are the only pictures we have of them,
so that's why you keep seeing the same ones over and over again. I've posted an update of where we are at in our adoption process below the pictures!

Sasha, is our little one who has hydrocephalus and is also crippled. There is a chance that with surgery, he might be able to walk. His eyes have always drawn us to him. What a beautiful little angel he is!

Precious little Misha has Down Syndrome. What a little love! We'll get you in some boys clothes soon little buddy :)!

Little Mikey has cardiomyopathy. We can't wait to sweep him up in our arms and hold him tight! We're coming soon little love!

We've had some set backs with the adoptions of our three little guys. There were some things that happened with our adoption paperwork in Ukraine that caused delays. That hold up caused delays in SDA clearing our paperwork, thus causing us delays in getting an invitation date to meet our little angels. We were all so sad! We were asked to get all our paper work re-done because the setbacks caused our paperwork to expire (it's valid for 6 months). Wow! That was a bit like a punch in the stomach... because we had worked so hard on getting all the paperwork completed! We gulped really hard and got back to work. We just completed all our paperwork for the second time around today! It's all been notarized and apostiled and will be off in the mail and on the way to Ukraine again, by 4PM! What a relief!

Our boys are worth any challenge that comes our way. They are worth fighting for! Please keep them in your prayers.
We want to be sure that because of the delays that occured, they will not be sent to the institution, while they wait for us to bring them home! That's one of our biggest concerns.

God bless you all and thanks again so much for those of you who have faithfully prayed for us and the precious boys we are
trusting and believing will be ours very soon!

I;m so glad your paperwork is on its way again! I have pictures and even video of Misha from our trip to Ukraine when I met him in February. I thought those were all sent to you but please e-mail me if you don't have them!

Hey Renee! I met you last year when your cousin, Kim, and I stopped by your house during the women's conference.. Just wanted to pop in to say I have been and will continue to pray for your boys to be speedily and safely in your forever family. :) I stand amazed at God's goodness, that He has chosen to rescue these little ones by way of a worshipping family in the middle of the US.

I think that your boys are so beautiful! I know that they are going to flourish in your home and we all who come in their midst will feel blessed. Mikey is cute, and I think that when he gets here you may be surprised at how well he will do.

The Loux Family said...

You're so sweet Kristi! Thanks so much for your support. It was awesome seeing your little tiny angel again on Monday! Love you!

Dolores said...

I'm so proud of you for getting all of that paperwork done AGAIN! And it's already on its way! We hope all goes well, it'll all be so worth it when you can hold them in your arms and see them play and laugh together in their own family.

Found your blog today, your boys are precious. We too are waiting word our dossier has been accepted before the SDA shuts down for the year! Praying that these children are released to their awaiting families soon! God Bless!

The Loux Family said...

How exciting that you are waiting to meet your little one too! I pray that both of us will get to meet our precious ones before the SDA closes for the year!

God bless you!
