The next step in our Bulgarian adoption, is to email a personalized letter for each child, along with photos of our house and of our family, to our facilitator in Bulgaria. She will translate them and then a social worker will take the letter and pictures and visit each of the children in their orphanages. They will discuss the child's feelings regarding our family and hopefully afterwards they will have a good idea of whether or not they are interested in being adopted by us. This is very different than any adoption process we have gone through thus far. I'm nervous! What if they don't like us?? Eeek!

I am happy to share our third and final child from Bulgaria with you all. "John" is 12 years old. He is of Roma descent and he likes to draw, play basketball, and read books. His special needs include age and some delays in school. "John" is #3 of the 5 kids that we will be adopting. We will look for two children in Ukraine when we travel there sometime this year.
P.S. John is wearing a shirt that says OKLAHOMA on it! What are the odds of him wearing my home state proudly? He's already an Okie. Can't wait to meet this cute kid.
