Hello Supporters,
Yesterday was our day in Bulgarian court (well our paperwork's day in court) and we now have two more faces to kiss, four more hands to hold..... introducing Anelia Ann Prayer Schildbach and Marin Praise Schildbach! We'll keep you posted about pick up date once we know (looking like early April).

Friends and supporters - we have been waiting AND WAITING for our paperwork to get to a court in Bulgaria, and that day has finally been scheduled. Next Tuesday, March 4th, our case will be reviewed in court and the children will be officially ours. They will still need more official documents (US Passports, Bulgarian birth certificates), but this means that about two weeks from now we will be told when we will be able to go pick up the kids and bring them home. They are getting closer and closer to being here! Thanks again for everyone's help and support!!!! This has been a long process and we couldn't have done it without all of you.

We are raising funds to adopt a Romani girl from Bulgaria who is blind and has been institutionalized for the first five years of her life (for updated information visit our blog - http://bringingnhome.blogspot.com/).  Being institutionalized has limited her development and will continue to limit her ability to reach her full potential. She is nonverbal at this time, will only walk with a caregiver’s hand, and has been known to snuggle with other children due to feeling lonely and isolated.  Our family can provide a nurturing environment for her to thrive in, with plenty of love, four helpful siblings (one of whom is excessively snuggly), and lots of singing and auditory stimulation (also known as extremely chatiness).

We are also adopting an 8 year-old boy with a "magical" left arm and scoliosis - he's a charmer and would fit right into our family.
