Amazing

Phillip took two videos on his i-phone. I can only seem to upload one, but will try the other one later. It is simply amazing to see my daughter (so HAPPY to be able to say that) already progressing. It speaks LOUDLY to the importance of even a LITTLE investment. She is blowing my socks off and she isn't even out of the orphanage yet. Phillip and Isaac continue to visit her and Max everyday, twice a day. Soon Max and Ivanna will say their goodbyes to the orphanage. I ask that you pray that both children stay healthy during the time they are still in country applying for visas and while on the plane home. Please pray that this next step of acquiring new birth certificates, passport application, and visa medical checks will go smoothly and expeditiously. I am ANXIOUS to have my family ALL together again.


Just look at my precious girl. Do you remember how she was when we met her on November 1st? The progression since then is astonishing - and I praise the LORD for it all.

Oh, Chsrrissa, I have tears in my eyes for your little miracle. I think you should have named her "GRACE", as in AMAZING GRACE! What a wonderful thing you are doing for your little girl! I said to preacher earlier in the month when she crawled that there was hope she might walk someday. NO IDEA it would be in just weeks! God is SO GOOD, isn't He? Sweet, sweet, sweet! I loved it! Thank you for sharing! Give Phillip our love!

Charrissa, I so am not liking the filter on my computer..... I keep missing so many of your videos. Can't wait to see her doing all of these wonderful things in person! I am praying much for you all during the "last leg" of their journey home.
Love ya, Grace

Wowza! Awesome! Praise the Lord, what a blessing! Just shows how much difference even just a small amount of time invested in love can do for children. How amazing! Can't wait to see how much more she progresses once she is home!

Tears here too. Oh I cannot wait to see her in person and play with her. She seems to just want to thrive just need someone else to love her and want her to as well. Oh I love it. Praying many more children will get this kind of investment!

Watching this brought tears to my eyes. I can't believe how much she has accomplished with just a lot of love & little attention. Praise God that He sent your family into Little Ivanna's & Max's life. Praying for them to be home soon. Can't wait to see the first WHOLE family picture! I love you both!!
