Update

We've been informed that the adoption of Nastya has been finalized, and that it won't be stopped and that we won't be able to get any more updates on that situation. So, it's certain that we won't be able to adopt Nick's twin sister. :o( However, we are still planning on adopting Nick and hope to be able to adopt another girl once we arrive. I appreciate your prayers on our behalf during this trying time. Everything is in God's hands - so I know that this is what He wants for us, even though it's hard to understand and accept. I'm grateful for a knowledge of God and that He is merciful and wants for me to be happy. Even though I'm sad now - I know that once our adoption is finalized that I will feel great joy, joy that will overshadow the sadness that I now feel.

Well, think about the family that is receiving Katya. They are probably so excited... and maybe have been praying and praying for an opportunity to come. Anyway, things will work out!

I'm so sorry that happened. There's a lot of injustice in the world and a lot of corruption. See you soon. Love ya x

Sarah C said...

I am so sorry. I hope things work out for the best for you and the adoption. We love you.

I am so sorry to hear this ! It makes me cry so much for you, I am in a similar situation being told the little girl I have picked isn't really up for international adoption and I have paid tickets to go preview her in 21 days ! Agency is trying to fix it or find me another girl ! I want the one I picked !

It hurts so bad I can't explain it !

I'm so sorry. That is so sad. I think it is just plain wrong that they won't let them keep in contact. At least he would know her that way.

I hurt for you. I cannot imagine finding out that one of my twins has already been given to someone else.

Liz said...

I pretty much feel like anything I could say right now would just not even begin to help you guys right now but we are thinking about you and you are in our prayers.

I am sorry to hear you have lost her, I too tried to hold on to hope and I also lost her. It hurts so badly, and most folks do not understand how we can give our hearts to a child we never met, but we can and do. My heart breaks for your loss.

Carina said...

I am so sorry for your loss. You are definitely in our prayers, and may the Lord bless you as you try to find out His will for your family.

I'm not impressed by the situation! Actually it makes me feel so bad for Keith too! But I am impressed by your attitude, because you're right; God's the orchestrator and His plan is perfect, even if it seems so unfair. One day you'll see the big picture and realize what great things are in store. Love you guys!

Oh, I am so, so sorry about Nastya/Katya. Some things are so hard to understand why they happen. But I am excited for Nick/Keith and hope and pray that that process goes quickly and smoothly for you so you will soon have him in your arms!!! I know he will bring you great joy!

I ran across this quote on another friend's blog and thought of you guys..."To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you."

Good luck and hope you are enjoying vacation time

Oh. :( Also not the news we wanted to hear. Praying for you and both the twins.

I cannot understand how they could split twins.
I hope you find peace in knowing Nastya is now in a home and will be loved.

It is hard to imagine sometimes that my children have bio siblings living in other parts of the world, and it is nothing I can control. To think there is a boy that might look just like my son is crazy to me!

Nick is waiting and your daughter too for you to come and get them!
