Aleksa Faith Cornish! The newest member of our growing family!
(Yes, she wanted DOWN!)
Today the judge, two jurors, the prosecutor, the inspector, and the director all ‘seconded’ our petition to adopt you, making it unanimous approval and leading to a ruling that you will now be named Aleksa Faith Cornish… our daughter!
When we named you Aleksa Faith, in September of 2007, we had no idea the amount of Faith we’d be brought to through the journey to bring you home. We knew it was a faith journey to go over the ocean to a land where we didn’t speak or understand the language. We knew it would be a step of faith to finance it (the first time). We knew it would test our faith to be gone from our kids at home the 3 weeks (which was the original plan, in 2007) we thought it would take to get you home.
Now, 3 years after we began your adoption the first time, God has brought us to an entirely new level of faith! So far I’ve spent 12 weeks total in Ukraine over the last 3 years, and will have another 2 weeks or so still to go. We’ve flown the ocean 5 times and have 3 more passes to make. We’ve waited and worked to see God’s provision for not one adoption, but soon to be five children with special needs.
God has great plans for you, our Aleksa Faith! And we are honored and blessed to finally call you DAUGHTER!
Love, your Mommy and Daddy
