It was a difficult decision, but I will not be going on the mission trip to Ukraine in April 2011. I don't think I can be away from Alex that long and can't imagine going back to Ukraine without him and Tim. Also, Alex will most likely have his tonsils out and I will need to use ETO time for that. I would have to take 8 ETO days for the trip and it will take four months to earn those days back. I don't want to deplete my ETO bank in case of emergency.
I still feel compelled to do something in Ukraine and for the children, especially the Nikolaev Baby House.
If only we were wealthy, I would beg to go back and adopt several more.
Have a great week,
R & T & A
