Finally some good news for the holidays

Afternoon all,

First, let me catch everyone up on the events of the past few weeks. We've suffered two losses in Greg's family (I'll spare everyone all the medical details).

First, on November 25th, his mom of 80 years of age, fell and broke her left leg in two different places. This put her in the same hospital as Greg's sister Annette who was battling cancer. Annette died the next morning. She was 58 and was laid to rest on November 29th.

The break on Greg's mom's leg didn't heal due to poor circulation and diabetes. On December 12th the decision was made to amputate her leg on the 17th. She passed away peacefully December 14th and was laid to rest on the 17th.

So, a little good news will go a long way!!!

And...we have it!

We have just received travel dates for our first trip to Moscow. We're departing January 23rd and returning January 31st.

Greg, Mary and Katie

Greg and Mary,

I am thrilled you will be traveling to Moscow soon to adopt Daniel. May God bless you all and may he wrap his arms around you while you travel this road in life. So sorry to hear about Greg's mother and sister. I know he must be hurting terribly. If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to call me. We will be keeping you all in our private prayers.

Mark and Aimee Ping
