Day 13 - It's LUCKY 13 for us....

It's OFFICIAL!!!!!! We are the very proud parents to FIVE children!

There is ONE LESS orphan in the world today! By order of a Ukrainian court, our little girl is an orphan no more!!!!

From this day forward, she is Everlyn Grace Smith...a daughter, grand-daughter, sister, niece, cousin and of course...American / Ukrainian Princess!!!!

We are SOOOOOO excited! We were NOT expecting court until early next week, but somehow we managed to have court TODAY...and good thing since the judge was leaving town for a week! LOL! More blog posts with more details (and yes, PICS) to come...but we are EXHAUSTED!

Thanks for your continued prayers!

Everlyn Grace, Born 1.26.08 - Adopted 10.15.10
