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!

Surgery Tomorrow

Thank you for supporting TLC's efforts to help Andrei from Crimea. He is blind in one eye due to a horrible mistake by an eye surgeon several years ago in Ukraine. With your help we collected $575 to help this young man keep from losing sight in his other eye.

Andrei and his mother arrived in Chicago late last week. Here he is enjoying some Olive Garden. I wonder if he might gain a few pounds before he heads for home?! His surgery will take place tomorrow at 12:10pm Central Time. Please pray for him, his mother and the surgeon as well.

I learned a little more tonight about what Andrei is facing. He must remain in a face-down position for 2 weeks following the surgery. Can you even imagine? He is not a baby, so he understands what is at stake, but it's going to be very difficult for him and his mother. Eating, sleeping, everything...face-down at all times.

Also, please remember Andrei and Marina's host family. The family thought they would be hosting for one month, but the doctor informed them that Andrei cannot fly for at least two months after this surgery. A pretty huge change of plans there. Also, though the doctor has reduced his fees, the hospital is proving to be more costly than expected. Much to pray about.

Thank you.
