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!

Quick Update

Hey Everyone! James here.

I just wanted to let everyone know that Stephanie, Wes and the boys are on a train headed to Kyiv! They should be there Tuesday morning sometime. Then embassy appointment, Clincal visits. Then they will be on the plane heading home early Thursday morning (Ukraine time), and arriving home in Wichita at 5:05 PM Thursday evening.

Everyone here at home is excited to finally get everyone home and together at last. We still have to get one crib set up and one bed moved out to make room. Yes we have been putting it off, so I guess it is time to get moving.

Please keep Steph and the boys in your prayers. Pray that the kids handle the change they are experiencing. They have left the only routine they have ever known. Pray for a peaceful and restful train ride and then the long plane rides.

This leg of our journey is about over and we are looking forward to the next.

Psalm 37:4 Says "Delight in the lord, and he will give thee the requests of thy heart."

He has definately given us much. Not only these 2 sweet boys, but so much more.



  1. I will be praying for you - Stephanie, and your three sons. For smooth travels, much patience, and smooth transition. May God bless you and keep you.

  2. Praying for you too! Praying all goes very smoothly over the next few days in Kiev and on the way home!

  3. can not wait to see you all HOME together!!!

  4. Hi James,We are in Kiev now waiting for our app on thurs. our mobile number is 380508105441 if Stephanie would like some company and help minding the kids.We would love to be of help.take care, Cass
