I learn a lot of these lessons from my friends.
This precious family lives in our town.
They own one of our favorite family hangouts, The Cupcake Lounge.
Last year they traveled to the Ukraine to bring home
what they thought would be two kids,
a boy and a girl.
The Lord changed their plans and they arrived home with their teenage son, Adrian.
But the desire for a sister never left their hearts.
They pursued for months a girl, Anatasia.
They prepared the documents, began raising funds, advocated for their daughter and
planned to make a place in their home for their newest addition.
The Lord changed their plans.
They were heartbroken to know Anastasia had been adopted by another family,
only weeks before they were to leave for Ukraine to bring her home.
Alecia and her husband Brian decided to travel any way, and seek the daughter
they knew was waiting for them.
They have a lot of funds still to raise.
