Spencer is on his way...

to Kiev!

We put him on the train today... with the help of several very loving friends. Thanks to Brennen for driving us there, Vlad, Joy, Hannah, TJ, Lena, and Lena P for being there with us to say goodbye to Spencer.

It was hard to say goodbye but it was good to know that he is starting a new chapter in his life. We are grateful to God for allowing us to be the parents of two incredible sons!

I, as a mom felt like today was bitter-sweet. I know he is going on to the great things that God has planned for him. But the era of our little nuclear family being together under one roof has ended.

Thanks again for all of the prayers on his behalf. He should arrive in Kiev at 3:15 tomorrow!


  1. Blessings! I am sure there are many mixed emotions...

  2. Praying for him! And you too!

    Roots and wings. You have given him both. I'm holding you, Spencer and Tom close in my prayers.
