We are funded to bring O, V, and Dima here for the summer and we are SO thankful!!
Many of our sweet friends and family members chipped in to support us, and we thank you all so much. The kids will be here in 31 days and we cannot wait. We skyped with our Dima today and he is so excited to come back - YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN!! We cannot thank you enough.
We do want to extend a special thank-you to the incredible, wonderful Tatyana Alpatova and her group of friends in TX (including Marina Dubkova-Deyo), who fundraised over $2,000 to bring the kids here. Tatyana has encouraged us, supported us, and worked SO hard to make this happen and it. is. incredible. These kids will never know how dearly they are loved. Tatyana and her friends have gone above and beyond anything that we had ever expected or hoped for. We never, ever planned to be fully funded for this summer - only our incredible God, working through such sweet sweet friends, could have made this happen.
Thank you, friends. If you have prayed for us, shared a fundraiser, contributed financially, given us loving words (even if you think we're crazy! ;) ), sent clothes for the kids (thank you Stephanie L Cato!!), or supported us in a myriad of other ways - you are making a difference to these three sweet kiddos - and to our family!
And Tatyana - thank you. You have blessed us so much, and you have been just so encouraging and loving throughout this - and oh my goodness your help has been incredibly, amazingly, wonderful!! Thank you thank you thank you!!
We are just thrilled to love on O, V, and our sweet Dima this summer and we have so much fun planned!
Thank you so much for all of your help and love through this - we cannot wait for June 5th!!! <3 <3 <3
