Just a quick note from today

We are back on the road again - cautiously, of course.  Today, our team set out early for a day of visiting a number of the humanitarian projects where we have all worked. Also, John Wright leaves early Monday morning for Canada and he wanted to say good-by.

After getting home, I had a haircut appointment with the young lady who always does it and as we were walking home, we detoured to avoid a large group of men who had gathered.  We have no idea what was going on, but Natalia felt best to avoid it. I shared with her my sadness at the loss of freedom and sense of safety we have had here.  She told me her friends and family were frightened about the days ahead. Our precious friends here have lost more than I can completely understand. 

On a great note: We will be sharing a tremendously warm story this week - the story of an extreme makeover for a family.

We are here another ten days and then have two trips scheduled for training - Ukraine and Poland.  We excited about these upcoming opportunities to speak to social workers and families in both countries about the joy of building a family through adoption. We return May 2 to finish out the univeristy at return home at the end of May.

Thank you for sharing our journey....
