I hope you understand that I can't go into details, but recently we wrote a letter to Valya introducing ourselves and telling her that we would like to adopt her. She received the letter last Friday. We described our family, included pictures of ourselves and our home, and letters and pictures from her friends Lena and Tanya that were adopted by the Tolly's last year.
We had been praying for her for a long time and this opportunity. We have found out that Valya has 5 siblings, with occasional contact with a brother, and infrequent contact with her mother. Please pray for her and us as she decides if she would like to be adopted. According to the orphanage director, she is adoptable.
The other thing that concerns us is the SDA. Will they let us adopt her? We will do all that we can, but really it is out of our control. It is a helpless feeling. So much uncertainty.
WBC and Sam!
