I had a dream ...

I had the most wonderful dream last night! Borya was part of a travelling church group, and they came to America. I got to go see him sing, and was able to sit with him afterwards and talk. I had expected him to know a few words of English (he's taking English lessons), but to my surprise he could speak fluently, and we had such a nice, long conversation. He finally had to go, but I was able to give him a hug and tell him I would see him again soon. I remember lying in bed half awake, wishing for the dream to continue. Hopefully part of it will become reality, and we will someday soon be able to sit together and talk. Keep praying for us to find a way to make this adoption go through!

Broken Arm

I just received word from Pastor Alexey that Borya broke his arm, but is doing fine. I don't have any information other than that. It's so difficult to have something happen to your child when they're halfway around the world and there's nothing you can do, not even give a hug.

Still no updates on the adoption process ....

We received bad news from our coordinator that the authorities in Ridder (the town where Borya's orphanage is located) are saying they will not allow the adoption. It has to do with their interpretation of the regulations. In no way do I consider this the end of the road, just a pretty major roadblock we've got to find a way to get around. We're working on it, and will keep you posted once we find a way to get this behind us.
