Blessed be the Name of the Lord…

Here’s Misha… DSCF2122 He is at the mental institution in Romaniv.  He has lost a lot of weight since he was moved here in October.  He’s become quite frightened of everything and is very scared.  He was hungry the whole time we were with him and he pointed at his mouth, pointed out the window at the “canteen”, and searched our bags for food.  It was a very emotional day for lots of reasons.  But we are trusting God to do what He alone is able to do… There are some paperwork problems, but that’s apparently to be expected.  So…there you go. Here’s some more pictures of our visit with him… DSCF2119 DSCF2120 DSCF2121 DSCF2122 DSCF2124 DSCF2125  DSCF2125_face0 George, our facilitator  DSCF2126  DSCF2127  DSCF2128  DSCF2129  DSCF2131  DSCF2132  DSCF2133  DSCF2133_face0 My beautiful wife.  I couldn’t begin to be here without her.
 DSCF2135  DSCF2135_face1  DSCF2136  DSCF2137 Misha loved looking at the pictures in the photo album.  He can say “hannah.”    DSCF2138  DSCF2139  DSCF2139_face1 She is so beautiful.    DSCF2140  DSCF2142  DSCF2143  DSCF2144  DSCF2145  DSCF2146  DSCF2147  DSCF2147_face0  DSCF2149 He kept putting the toys in the backpack and going to the front door.  :*(    DSCF2150_face0  DSCF2154  DSCF2158  DSCF2162  DSCF2164  DSCF2165  DSCF2168  DSCF2169 Ummm…yes.  We spilled the big bottle of bubbles on the carpet.  🙂    DSCF2170 Misha already calls us Mama and Papa.  He has no concept of what that is…but it’s nice to hear the words.  🙂     Our visit with Matthew tonight was very sweet.  He remembered us.
When we left, he screamed and cried.  It broke our hearts, but it’s good that he’s getting attached to us.  DSCF2176  DSCF2177  DSCF2180  DSCF2183  DSCF2184  DSCF2193   Thanks for the prayers.  We have several large barriers to climb, but God IS FAITHFUL!  Thanks for your love and support.   NANA:  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  We love you. KIDS:  We miss you terribly.  We look at your pictures often.  We can not wait to come home and be with you.  We love you will ALL of our hearts.  Take care of each other!! BLAKE:  Don’t forget that Seth NEEDS hugs.  You initiate it and give him real hugs. All our love to you!   PS:  we’ll post a video of Misha hopefully tomorrow.  Today was a FULL day.  Tomorrow may be too, but Saturday is coming.  🙂  o/
