Have I Ever Told You How Much I Love Volcanos!!!!!

Ok, that was a lie!

Who would of ever thought last November when we started this journey that a volcano would be a stumbling block!!

Joe was all packed and ready to leave this morning, when we saw that his long flight to Germany had been cancelled due to the ash from the volcano reaking havic once again.;(

Thanks to our trusty travel agent, he will be leaving, with our fingers crossed, in the morning. He will fly out around 11am and arrive in Kiev Wednesday afternoon.

This does add a bit of changes to getting Olga. The orphanage does not allow children to leave in the afternoon, catch me in about a two weeks and I will fill you in on my reaction to this!!:) He will be able to get her on Thursday, which will be such a blessing to check the blog and see the photos of the two of them together!!! I can not wait!

Oleg gave us a possible return home date of next Tuesday or Wednesday. So please keep praying that round 2 in Ukraine goes smoothly and Olga's transition time with her daddy is filled with fun, laughter and cuddle time.

Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

I will update on Joe's arrival in Kiev.
Thanks for everyones support!!!!!


  1. UGGGH! I tell you that that volcano is driving me crazy. SOOOO sorry it is affecting you guys again! So so so unreal! Be safe and soon she will be home and we can tell our Ukrainian angels that not even a volcano could keep us from them!!! xo

  2. Yes Amen! The Lord will lift you up when you are weary.
    A little volcano ash is just a trick from the ole devil. He's trying to get you and Joe to doubt that you are doing the right thing and that you should give up. I have been rebuking him all day. Claiming the blessing that the Lord has given you guys for your obedience.
    Thanks for the update. Hope to see you next week!

  3. Oh my goodness! OK, praying for his flight to make it tomorrow.

  4. That volcanoe needs to stop causing problems already, enough is enough!!!

  5. praying for them !!! seems to be a lot of strange rules.. :)

  6. That volcano is so annoying! The afternoon rule is more annoying though. Will pray Olga and her Daddy home.

  7. Tomorrow is it. The big day. The day Olga gets to cry, scream, laugh, shout, giggle, and feel love in Joe's arms without someone taking her away!

    Prayed every step of the way...I won't stop now!
