Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

Oct 8 2010 Arrival Home

How exciting it was to get off that plane!! I just knew that we would have an awesome welcome home party waiting for us. I could not wait to see Steven and the kids. We did it, we did it is all I kept saying to Ian, Ellia and Benjamin. The funny part was some passengers on the plane said, "wow, you have your hands full", little did they know, hehhe.
Once I had the kids in their stroller...I pulled out their American and Ukraine flags and handed it to them. I actually quickly showed them how to wave the flags and they got it quickly. So as we came around the corner...I could see lots of little kids through the frosted glass and I said Ian Run, Run and we Ran as fast as we could around the corner!!
We were surrounded with so many hugs, cheers and kisses. They loved it. We managed to take this picture quickly.


  1. Beautiful photo. Congratulations and welcome home.

  2. Goodness, you have such a beautiful family! It was so nice to have met you at the embassy in Kiev. Your kids are all so sweet and adorable (my sister fell in love with Ian!) You are such wonderful people and I love sharing about your family with people I know. What a beautiful picture of God's adopting us as His children.

  3. God Bless you all! How wonderful to see the kids thriving!
