God knows us individually
and he surrounds us with the friends that we need to have to help us throughout life. Valerie and her amazing family came over tonight for dinner and LOTS of talking while the kids played. Valerie has biological triplets and then adopted 2 special needs children - one from Uzbekistan and the other from Ukraine. In fact, her son, Evan, was in the same orphanage and in the same room as my Nikita. Their cribs were right next to each other. Valerie is the one who helped us find our son and I'll be forever grateful to her. In addition to this - she has helped me prepare for this trip to Ukraine with long phone calls and visits and I'm so grateful to her for helping me through this foreign (pun intended) journey. How amazing that there is a friend right here in OH who can help me through this adoption. God certainly knows us. I am grateful for all the blessings he gives me as I proceed to follow the path that he has laid out before me.
