There's our pretty girl. Sitting and waiting and ready for us. Now that we have all the paperwork completed we are just awaiting an invite to travel from her home country in Eastern Europe. We've got all our agency fees and in country fees accounted for. The only thing we need help with are the three flights we'll be making to Eastern Europe. The cost for two tickets round trip is roughly 2500 and that doesn't include the costs of visas. If you would be willing to contribute, click the link on the right of the page. If you have airline miles you're willing to donate please contact me directly: gretgillette@gmail.com Our little lady is currently being treated for issues related to her spina bifida, namely urology. The sooner we get her home, the sooner she can receive the care and support she needs. Can you imagine being in a hospital without your family's support? It breaks my heart. Lets get this girl home!


  1. Best wishes to you as you prepare to bring your daughter home. I hope you will get to travel soon! My son, Carson, was born with spina bifida and he is such a blessing to our family! You guys will be in our prayers as you continue to wait.

  2. I am so excited for you! Thank you for reminding me that I forgot to answer your question about the children names...LOL...time sure flies.
    Our children already had “English” names, but we wanted to choose names for them as it just felt more personal. Then our agency asked the children before we came if they would like to keep their old “English” names, or if they would like the ones that their new family was thinking of. Clive wanted to keep his old name (Clive), so we kept that and gave him two middle names - Charles - for my precious Uncle who passed away this year, and his Chinese name. Noelani wanted to get rid of her old English name (it had bad memories for her), and she wanted the name that we chose for her. They really adjusted to their names very quickly and we have had no problems with it. Of course, the first few days they didn’t recognize that we were calling them, but they got past that quickly.
    Has this answered your question?
    Thank you so much for visiting our blog and for your question. It is something I wondered about when we first began our journey to our children!
    Praying that she is home soon!!!!
