Can you believe it?! Tomorrow morning my parents will be boarding a plane headed to Ukraine for their first of two adoption trips to bring Sasha home!  We want to thank EVERYONE who has contributed to helping us make his adoption possible.

Our Thank You Postcard

My parents send this message to everyone:

It’s time for the "rubber to meet the road" As this adoption of sasha moves to the traveling stage. We want to stop and thank all of you that supported us to get us to this point! All of us have no Idea what is store for sasha & his future, here in america. But as we learned the plight of others like himself leaving the orphanage at the age of 16 to go out to fend for themselves there is very little hope for them. But as a group you have all pitched in an made this all possible.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you all

~jim, miriam, jenelle, kayla, bradley & SASHA
