Stories About Adoption - Final Page

 

Our translator asked us what we thought about adopting the little 7 year old girl. I said we just met her a few minutes ago and we need some time, to talk and pray about it as a family. The translator asked the assistant director if we could spend some time together with the little girl (playing with her etc.). Time was very short though and our translator said we only had until 9 a.m. the next morning to give her an answer, so that the paperwork process could begin. We agreed.

The next morning we told our translator that we were ready to go ahead and proceed with the process to adopt the seven year old girl. I read in my Bible the night before Psalm 37:23. "If the Lord delights in a man's way he makes his steps firm". After reading that, I knew that if the Lord wanted us to adopt her,and that he would allow all the paperwork to go through.

We continued to visit the 7 year old girl every day. In between there were many offices to visit and sit in the car and wait to get papers signed etc. One of the officials in the city decided that he was not going to sign our papers. Our translator told him that if he didn't sign the papers she (along with someone from the court), would report him. He signed the papers!

We were on a "time clock" because we already had our tickets booked.

The judge helped us by scheduling our court hearing for a special Saturday session. We officially adopted her that day and picked her up at the orphanage the next day. We drove to another city to get her Ukrainian passport, then back to Kiev for more paperwork.

After completing everything in Kiev, our driver and translator drove us to Warsaw, Poland in order to go to the American Embassy. The little girl received her visa to travel to the USA and we left Poland. Upon arrival in the USA, she officially became a US citizen.

The little seven year old girl's life was touched by the "love of God". For four years we had prayed that God would prepare the little girl that He wanted to be in our family and He did just that.

The little seven year old girl was asked when we first visited her, if she wanted to be adopted by an American family. Her answer was yes! "I want to be in a family again and have a mother and father. God had His eye upon her and her prayer was answered.

The seven year old girl has been with our family for many years now and has adjusted very well. She is fluent in English and loves America!

We are so thankful that God helped us to "wait" and follow His plan in adopting the "little seven year old girl". We are so grateful that she is part of our family. It would not be complete without her!

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14.
