Updates & Prayer Requests

Update: The good news is that the document we have been waiting on from the Embassy in Warsaw (the Article 5) is finished. The bad news is that we haven’t gotten it yet because our attorney, bless her heart, fell off a ladder and broke her nose and got pretty banged up. Needless to say, […]

DIY Two-Sided Wooden Playboard

Hello, friends! Since we are still waaaaaaaiting to hear about our court date and thus our travel dates, I thought I’d take a bit of a departure from our usual adoption updates for something a little different.  Since I have had a lot more free time than usual lately, I have been experimenting with some […]

Thank You (or “Dziękuję”, as our Polish friends say)
