The judge in Chisinau signed the order and dated it 4/17/09 instead of 4/21/09 which places us four days closer to getting Hope home!!! We hope to return around May 21st for our second trip. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who prayed for us and continues to pray. We also appreciate that so many of you offered to give us a regular shower for Hope. However, after seeing the orphanage, we felt led to request items for the children. Thanks to some sweet friends, we came up with the idea of an “ORPHANAGE SHOWER.” We are very excited about this, and you will find a list of items below if you would like to participate. We will be taking these items with us when we return. Shipping these items directly to the orphanage is not recommended due to some corrupt customs officers.
The “ORPHANAGE SHOWER” will be held at First Baptist Church, Montgomery on Sunday, May 17th at 4:00 pm. More details will follow regarding the exact location within the church.
