Money Back!

We are so thankful. After several conversations among our facilitator in Ukraine, our adoption agency, and us, it was finally settled that our facilitator would return most of what we were told we would receive, and our agency made up the difference by applying the remaining balance to our Ethiopian program fees. We are so relieved to have the money and to have some closure with our attempted Ukraine adoption. Thanks to those of you who prayed for this situation. God has been generous.

So now we're moving forward with Ethiopia. It's hard to start everything all over again, but there really isn't much choice in the matter. We are hopeful, however, that this process will be smoother and less stressful. We've heard great things about Ethiopia adoption. Let's see.

I'm so happy to hear that this issue has been resolved. I've been checking back often, and was concerned when there wasn't news.

I know a few families that have adopted from Ethiopia and they had very positive experiences.

Sorry to hear about your Ukraine experience. I have read of a number of families returning without children and now they arent accepting dossier for health kids only for special needs and older children. We just switched from Ukraine and are doing Bulgaria. A friend of ours recently adopted a 2 yr old girl from Ethiopia. God Bless.

Your right Ukrainian adoptions are full of stress, our journey is getting more strange everyday. God is on the throne and if nothing else, orphan children around the world are getting lots of attention from all the talk. I will be a groupie on your new journey to Ethiopia.
