Our Girl

Praise the Lord because He answered our prayers by unmistakably revealing our daughter to us!  God has selected an amazing little girl for us--kind, considerate, intelligent, polite, interactive, and beautiful.  Truly everything we could have hoped for.  We are so looking forward to spending more time getting to know her.  We need your continued prayer though, as a few final things need to fall in place before we can officially pursue her adoption.  Once those final details are taken care of, we will move from Kiev to her region of the country (hopefully on Tuesday or Wednesday) so that we can easily visit her at the orphanage.  Despite experiencing many ups and downs in our almost two weeks in Ukraine, the Lord's love and faithfulness has never ceased to overwhelm us.  He is teaching and refining us in such spectacular ways.  We are so thankful.

More details on all of this to come next week :)


  1. We are so happy for you guys! Wish you were going to be closer. We miss our neighbors.

  2. Very glad God made it so clear to you guys! I pray He continues to lead and guide you each step of the way and that you sense His nearness and presence! Look forward to when you can share more!

  3. Praying for you both as you go to meet this girl. I know when our family was there in Ukraine, it was amazing to see how God's hand was all over the journey and continues to be so back here at home. Can't wait to read about your first meeting with the girl and everything that follows. Know you guys must be thrilled.

  4. Hey Mr. and Mrs. Jackson!!

    I'm so glad you guys have already met and love the one you guys are going to adopt. We miss you and can't wait to meet your new addition. I still continue to pray for you and hope all continues to go well. :-)
