Our Friends the Weber's are in Ukraine

While we were in Ukraine adopting Valya and Sergey, another South Dakota family got to know us through our blog and met us at the Sioux Falls airport at our homecoming on Feb. 15, 2009. They are Erick and Joni Weber and they live about a 1-1/2 hour drive from us. In this picture, you can see me meeting Joni for the first time, with Erick and their son Misha looking on. Misha was adopted from Ukraine in Spring of 2008.

We talked by phone and emailed alot as they worked through their paperwork for their next adoptions, and now they are in Ukraine. You can follow their journey on their blog here. How exciting!

We know them, too! They're good friends with our missionary friend in Ukraine, and he connected us with them! I'm glad you pointed their blog out, because I wouldn't have recognized them!

By the way, you may as well move us up a few lines, since we're working on our second adoption now!

Hi there! I just found your blog and saw that you had a link to my blog! How funny! :) Anyway, as I'm sure you know, we just got home 2 months ago from Ukraine with our 14 year old son. This last month has been excruciatingly painful with defiance, disrespect, and some other very extreme behavior. I saw in your one-year anniversary post where you had written how you had also experienced defiance and that it was improving. That was encouraging to hear. We have those moments too where we just wonder what in the world we did. Our life has basically been turned upside down. I would love to be able to email or chat or something sometime and reap some of your wisdom! :)
