There are times in your life when you feel deep within your heart that something feels right. It is a feeling deep within you that feeds your heart with happiness. It is a feeling that you believe in, no matter how difficult, no matter how demanding something may be, you know that it is right. You know you have to follow your heart.

Who Do you think you are??

The judge said, “Your application to adopt is rejected.” The basis given was that Kirill was “not socially adaptable” due to his “medical condition” and he was better off in an institution than in a home with a family.

This was a ruling that a family had very recently while at their court date to get approval to bring their son home.  I cried when I read this. It broke my heart to know that there is a family our there for this young boy. A family who already loves him. A family that had loved him for many months. A family that has prayed, and waited for him. A family that wants nothing more to give this young boy a life that he deserves, that very child deserves, and they have been denied it. 

There are families out there that are getting ready to adopt a child with Down Syndrome  from this same region. Who are there right now, and may face the same judge. Who have hoped, and prayer for so long to have their baby home. 

For the life of me, I will never understand what drives people to say, and believe the things that they do.  But this brings us, back to where this journey began... is with faith. 

Faith...  that someone greater than us has brought us down this road to adoption.

Faith.. that people will understand your drive, and your love for these special kids.

Faith... that people will not only understand, but support us along the way

Faith... that when you put your heart in what you most believe in... God will see you thru

Faith... that people will see your love, and dedication to these kiddos, and want the same for them as you do

Faith... that the judge that we, as adoptive parents will stand before, that he/she will have the faith in us as parents. Children as human beings...

Faith... that the judge will understand that we have all the best intentions for our children and their future. 

Having faith is kinda a tricky thing some times... there are times when it is very easy to lose it... like the family that was just rejected at the court... or the family that is there now... but what those families all have in common... they have God.. they have family and they have the friends of Reeces Rainbow. We never give up, because these children are a huge part of our hearts, and they were in it long before we even knew that they were. They were part of the bigger plan... people of the world will someday see that they are human beings. That they deserve all the things in life... just like you and me. 

My hope is  that through the love of my son, and the testimony of adoption of Vika. As well as many other children with Down Syndrome. People will someday have the same love, acceptance, and Faith.... as I do. 

I want to personally thank everyone who has supported me along the way. Having faith in me that I can do this, and love and welcome this little girl into my home. I honestly, and truly could not be doing this without all of you. That is from the bottom of me heart. 

Thank you for being part of my journey...

There are times in your life...

There are times in your life when you feel deep within your heart that something feels right. It is a feeling deep within you that feeds your heart with happiness. It is a feeling that you believe in, no matter how difficult, no matter how demanding something may be, you know that it is right. You know you have to follow your heart.

When I first ever saw that picture of Vika, almost 7 months ago now. This is exactly what came to me..  this thought, this feeling that she was supposed to be home with NIcholas and I. It is a feeling that has since been overwhelming at times. To think that my life is going to change so much!! It is that feeling of this is the right thing to do, that sits deep within me is what keeps me going, and reassures me everyday, that I am making the right choice. 

There have been many twists and turns of my life that have led me down this road to adoption. Far too many to even try to explain here... Each decision I have made, Each decision that has been made for me. All the twists and turns of fate. I believe has lead me straight down this road to being Vikas Mommy. I am so excited to have my heart, and my mind open to the thought of having this special little girl come into my life, and into the life of my family and friends. I truly believe that her presence will bless all of us more than we can even comprehend at this point. She has experienced things, and has been through things that some of us will never even be able to comprehend, and things we may never even know about. But thanks to everyone that has blessed me along this way. She will soon learn what it is to be loved by a family. To learn, and discover what it is to be a child. 

 I want to thank everyone that has blessed me, and my family with your thoughts, your prayers, and monetary support. Please know what you are such  big part of something greater than yourself. You are part of giving a little girl a life that she would have never had without the love and support of people like yourselves. 

Thank you so much for all your ongoing love and support... I am thankful everyday!
