Bring Nastya home

We find ourselves being called to add to our family. We had never met Nastya when we decided to host a Ukrainian orphan. It never crossed our minds to add to our family of 5. We were barely keeping our heads above water after our suprise third child made his debut. BUT God had different plans. Nastya walked off the plane having never met me before and hugged me for about 5 minutes and sobbed. That was it. I was hers and she was mine. It was amazing!! But due to US laws she is not adoptable. So we had to explore other ways to get our whole family under one roof. That has brought us to the need for a student visa. My husband Michael is in Ukraine at this moment attempting to hammer down signatures for paperwork in hopes to obtain a sturdent visa. 

This trip has cost $6,000. While we have refinanced our home to bring our sweet girl home It is simply not enough to cover the expenses to get her here. Additionally, once she arrives, her student visa will require her to attend a government approved and extremely costly private school.  If you are able to join us in this journey through monetary gifts, we gladly welcome you to join arms in our road to bringing Nastya home. If you can cover us in prayers we would be so very grateful as well.
