The End of Our Kazakhtan Adoption Journey

When we left Kazakhstan we left with questions in our minds and hearts whether there was a child/children that we were suppose to meet. We received information this past week about one specific child that we had met and others that our agency requested that we consider. After much thought and prayer we have made a final decision that our adoption journey to Kazakhstan is done. We still believe that it was a journey that God called us on. It didn't end as we had anticipated but we are better people for having stepped out and traveled along this road. The people we have met and experiences that we have had have been life changing. We will continue to support and pray for the children's lives in Kazakhstan that we are blessed to be a part of. We look forward to the day that God reveals to us the "whole" picture.

prayed for you and still are...miss seeing you and wanted to give you a big hug when you got back but we have left Friends church. We needed a change and it's a long story. Keep in touch thinking of you.

Kris & Mark,

I know it is hard to close the door on this chapter of your life. You have been so diligent and faithful through it all.

Don't forget, when one door closes another one opens...... keep your eyes open for it. :)
