We have kissed our sweet husbands and children good-bye and are awaiting to board our first flight.

We will be departing shortly and will arrive in Kiev early tomorrow morning. We will be checking into our hotel and getting ourselves and "things" organized before we travel to Zaporozhye on Sunday. We have a lot to accomplish in little time.

Thank you for your prayers and your support!

We are thrilled to begin this journey!

Will post again soon,

Aimee and Jami


  1. Oh Aimee...I can't believe you are actually getting on the plane! Praise the Lord for getting you guys this far. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all day today. I can't wait to read that you are safe and sound in Kiev.

  2. Brace yourself for what you will see in those orphanages...remember Psalm 139. I was in the orphanages in Ukraine when the Lord first stirred my heart to adopt. Eden is the fruit from that trip. I can't wait to see how He will change, stretch and use you both. I'm praying for you guys! May His Words and love overflow from you so He is glorified!

  3. Been praying for you throughout the day and will continue to do so!
    "Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power!" (Eph. 6:10)

  4. we wish you safe journey and the best for the children you and so many are helping!

  5. The little boy we are hoping to adopt is in this region - in the city of Zaporozhye. He is 5. If there is any chance you can give us an update on him or get a photo, we would be very greatful! If you find him, please email us at
    Best of luck on your journey!

  6. YEAH! I am so excited you have made it safe and sound!!!!! Can't wait to see the pictures!!!

  7. We are praying for you. May God use you in a mighty way as witness to these children.Love you...
