We received our first adoption travel dates on New Year’s Eve.

from our first adoption

Aaron and I will be traveling to Ukraine to officially get Luda’s referral at the end of January. We’re so excited! It was great to give Luda a specific date when we’ll see her again!

Like I’ve done in the past, all posts while we’re in country will be private. You will need to enter a password to read them.

I do not limit this exclusively to friends and family, but I do need to know who is reading. If you’d like the password, please leave a comment and introduce yourself OR shoot me an email– my email address is at the right.

  1. I would love to keep up with your journey while you’re in-country. I’m an adoptee myself, and I love following your story. I spent 4 years working in the adoption field prior to my recent job switch

  2. Hey! I don’t comment much but I’ve been reading since before you adopted Reed and Lena, and I have loved watching your three children flourish! I would love to keep reading about Luda’s adoption!

  3. Hello! I’m a friend of tiny green elephants family. Found your blog through them years ago. Would love to keep reading. So excited for you guys. 🙂

  4. HI,

    I too, have been reading since Reed and Lena came home . . .. would love to keep up with your travels.
    By way of why – I am an adoptive mom of two boys – American foster care – but because the oldest’s ethnicity is Russian, I really like seeing the Eastern European regions – then I can, hopefully, make his heritage more real to him.

  5. I too would like to keep reading. I have been reading since just after you brought Gus home. We are interested in adopting, possibly from Ukraine. I am inspired by you and your dedication to helping others know more about international adoption

  6. Hi Molly,
    I have been following your blog since you brought Reed and Lena home. I would love to follow you through Luda’s journey. (I skipped Gus’s and caught up when you made it public, but it just wasn’t the same.)

  7. I would love to keep reading. My husband and I hope to adopt an older child in the future. I have been really inspired by your family!

  8. Hi there,
    I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and both my twin sister/me are likely going to adopt in the next few years. I would love to read your posts while overseas.

    All the best in 2016, Rachel.

  9. I’d love to continue to follow your journey!
    Have loved reading about your journey so far and praying for you guys!

  10. I would love to keep following your journey while you are away. I hope and pray that all goes through quickly and easily.

  11. I would love to be included! We are considering going this route for our own adoption and would love to see and hear all the details. I think you already have my email.
    Oh, and good luck! We are definitely praying for your family.

  12. I would love to continue to read. I am a mother to a daughter I adopted in Russia and all of these adoptions seem to take me back to the memories of her adoption.

  13. Hi! I’d love to follow along. I’ve been reading since Reed and Lena came home 🙂 i really want to adopt, but the process is somewhat difficult where I live – so I love following blogs meantime. Good luck for your travel, you must be so pleased to have the dates!

  14. Hi Molly, I can’t remember how I found your blog, but i am sure it was through the adoption community. We adopted a sibling set of 4 in 2004 from Ukraine and Ukraine is in our blood now as surely as if we ourselves grew up there. Would love to follow along with you as Luda travels home to join her family.

  15. Hi Molly, I was “introduced” to your blog through the adoption blog of a friend. I have so much appreciated getting a glimpse of your family through the beauty and sincerity of your writing and photographs. I’d love to witness your next steps in bringing Luda home.

  16. Hi! I have followed your blog since you did your adoption of Reed and Lena, and then your adoption of Gus. I’d like to follow your time in country with Luda. I am an adoptive mom too.

  17. Hi! I am an adoptive and foster mom, and love reading about others journeys through adoption! I would love to stay updated as you move through adoption again! Best wishes to you!

  18. I would love to follow your journey! I am in the process of foster adoption, with a dream of international adoption some day!

  19. I’d love to follow along as well! I’m a fellow adoptive parent and blogger. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know your family 🙂

  20. Yes, please! 🙂 we just sent our 4 Lat kids back on Sunday with P143… Our 4th hosting, but praying for Trip 1 this spring/summer. ~Carrie

  21. I’m just catching up on blog it the same password that it was before? If not I’d love to have the new one! I’ve been around since R & little L! I can’t wait to read about this one! Ashlee

  22. Hi Molly,
    Help! I have lost the password to the protected posts, that you so graciously sent me previously. Would you send me it again please? I love following along on your adoption of L.
