Sorry, I felt the need to wait a few days for this.
Mildred adopted from Simferopol last year. She was finished in record time and other than her facilitator trying unsuccessfully to frighten her and her husband away from riding the bus, things were smooth.
(Families may pay anywhere from $20-70 per day for a private driver to take them to their child's orphanage or institution for visits. Outrageous. Some families have felt the need to cut back on visits, as these daily charges add up quickly. Why not take the marshrutka bus for less than 50 cents per person? I'll talk about that sometime if anyone is interested.)
"I had been feeling guilty about not committing to [Little J], especially because I didn't feel as led to him as to some other children. I just didn't know what to do. Getting that call from Stephanie was a miracle, I was so happy to hear that [Little J] had a family nearly ready to travel to get him."I thank God that I was in the right place at the right time to intervene in this situation. It turned out happily, for both families are home now with a beautiful new child each. Mildred with Little J and Clarice with her sweet new daughter.
