She then began asking about social (government) programs that would be available to help us out. We remembered our facilitator telling us that Ukraine officials were often suspicious of American adoptions thinking that we were doing it for the money or some other benefit from the US government. If only they understood what we were sacrificing and spending to bring these children home. So we were a bit unsure about how to answer. I think we handled the questions well and the meeting ended with a few complimentary words from the administrator. As we parted ways with our facilitator she said everything was ok and for us to pray. We're hoping she meant to pray for our paperwork to get to Kiev quickly, but we didn't ask.
So, for now, we continue to put everything in God's hands and we know that He is in control. He has nothing but good in store for us and the children we came here to adopt. Thanks so much for all of your prayers and support. Leah
