Yes, I am going to resort to bribery. I have a new picture of Ember to share. BUT I am not going to share it just yet. Our FSP is $365 short of $4000. Now, $4000 is miles short of what we'll need before we are able to bring Ember home but it is a step in the right direction. Our pearl necklace/bracelet giveaway continues for 2 more weeks. If we can reach the $4000 mark I will share with all of you the new picture I have of our precious girl.
On another note, please pray we get a USCIS officer assigned and that they are willing to approve our application quickly. Each day that passes I grow more fearful that Ember's country will decide to halt adoptions.


  1. Have you contacted your congressmen? That's what I did. We got fingerprinted last week. I called the congress people and faxed a letter to USCIS about my girls. I got approved this week!!!

    Good luck! Let me know if I can help! I am so jealous you are getting pictures. I haven't gotten any!!


  2. I can't wait to see another picture of our little Ember! I agree with you that God was definitely with you in the fingerprinting process. Isn't He amazing and so good? We'll keep praying that the adoption process continues to move forward and that the Ukraine government does not stop adoptions! We are so excited at the thought of Ember joining our family soon! We love her already!
