Six years ago this time we were getting ready to travel to the Ukraine. Our appointment with State Department for Adoption was scheduled for the 25th of September. It was at that appointment that we would look through the files of children available to adopt and select a child.
The process took longer than we thought and planned. It ended up that we were there for about 6 weeks. Most of that time was spent in the eastern part of the country. We walked to the local supermarket, we found a few places to eat and spent time visiting J.
Now that part of Ukraine is in the news because of the fighting. We watch the news thankful that J is no longer living there. We pray for the Christians there as there is persecution for them.
U is for Ukraine. As Miss K would say, "J born".
