Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

Guess what?

I wanted to finish my story last week, but I've been feeling very poor. I had a gallbladder attack last month and my doctor thought it would be a good idea for me to have it removed before we travel to Eastern Europe. The recovery has not been a piece of cake, let me tell you.

So, I'll finish the story later because I have something else to say tonight. He have our SDA appointment!!

July 14!!

This is the appointment date we have been waiting for. That day we will sit down with the adoption officials in Alec and Zhenya's country and view their files and accept their referral. The next day we will pick up the referral and take the overnight train to the city where the orphanage is located. If all goes smoothly we hope to meet the boys on July 16.

I want desperately to be excited! I just have had hardly any time to really take it in. I had a bunch of enchiladas to deliver this morning, and more to make tomorrow. I needed to get my ten year old son off to church camp today. I did spend some time booking flights today, so that was kind of cool and scary at the same time. I'm just pooped out!

Please remember our fundraiser giveaways. Time is short and so are we!


  1. Oh may meet your boys on my birthday!!!!! I am soooo excited for you!!!!

  2. Oh I am so happy it is in July since that is what I showed the caretakers on the calander!!! hahaha! Alec is not in Dennis's group, he is down stairs. This is a good thing because only the children that need the most care are in with Dennis!! We may even still be here when you get to meet your new sons!!
