The Wollschlager Weekly
Ukraine's President, Viktor Yushchenko;(He's even thinking...What's up with this? Let the Wollschlager's have their appointment already!)
This poor guy, just like George W., has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He needs our prayers too. We all have our political opinions and it is easy to criticize, but personally, I wouldn't want the job for anything!! O.K., maybe I'd stand in for an afternoon if the compensation was an appointment with the SDA!!!!
I am contemplating changing the name of our Blog to The Wollschlager Weekly, because every week since our dossier submission, there has been a new story out of Ukraine regarding our status. Get the latest news reel here. Today, I made my ritual phone call to our Agency (Not that I thought there was anything new that they perhaps had forgotten to tell me. But...... as a matter of fact the new news, is the same old news, but just with a little twist just in case we are getting bored waiting or maybe to give me some fresh material for my faithful Blog groupies.
This week, in Ukraine, the Parliamentary Elections are taking place and therefore all of the government offices, which of course include the State Department for Adoption and Protection of Children’s Rights - "SDA", were closed. Which means our Coordinator did not go to Kyiv as she had thought she would and reports that she will go next week to obtain our appointment. (HUGE SIGH! Can you feel my breath throughout cyberspace?)
Anyway, it is a darn good thing I know that God's timing is so perfect or I wouldn't be chill'in right now. Please keep the prayers coming, I know we must be in the home stretch of this marathon because my shins are killing me!!! I'm going to go eat a bowl of Cheerios now. True comfort food for children of all ages.
