Krejchi  pic 2021_edited_edited.jpg

We made it to India, and back with Aryaman. It was quite the trip. Once we got back Aryaman was admitted to the ICU after a quick six hours in our house. We were in the hospital for two weeks and found out he had a lot more medical problems than we initially knew about. Thankfully he is starting to improve some, and just this week we were able to get him listed for a liver transplant, so we are praying for the phone call soon. Thank you for everything you do.

We arrived home Nov. 12th and then the kids went straight into a two-week quarantine, which was a challenge. They had their first day of full-time school last week and are busily making friends and getting settled.



Thank you again for the generous grant, it was a huge blessing to our family.

Artem & Anna - Ukraine

The final blessing we received was just yesterday from A Child Waits Foundation notifying us that the board had approved us for a financial grant.  This money will be so helpful as we pay for the final adoption fees and travel expenses for the next trip to bring Anna and Artem home. 

In Canada, there is not a lot of financial support out there for families wishing to adopt, so the generosity shown by organizations such as A Child Waits Foundation, Manulife Benefits, and the help of family and friends goes beyond measure.

Alexi - Thailand
