Russia Accreditation Process Proceeds

We received this news from our agency today:
Children's Hope received news that eight international adoption agencies, seven based in the U.S. and one in France, received their accreditation in Russia on Wednesday, July 4. Although Children's Hope was not one of the first accredited, we welcome this information and are excited the accreditation process has finally begun!

As the accreditation process proceeds, we will be notified of the timetable for the next batch of agencies to be accredited. Over 115 agencies are registered as NGO's and are awaiting accreditation. New updates will be released as specific official information is received.

Hopefully, more agencies receiving their accreditation will result in more adoptions being finalized and the whole process will speed up for everyone!

Last night we hosted dinner for some friends and enjoyed a big platter of Alaskan King Legs! (Thanks, Axley Family. I've got to admit, as much as we enjoyed visiting you in Puerto Rico, since you have been in Alaska, it sure has been nice to have connections to all the great seafood!) This was the best crab meat I have ever tasted, hand down!

That's Jeff and Abbey Land's son behind the crab legs. If you want to know more about him, check out Landlife at

The big "5"

Nolan's party was a blast. It was hot, hot, hot! Just perfect for a pool party!

'Till next time! Kim
