News about the VOTE

Courtney with Reece's Rainbow posted this today:

Good news on the vote. :) It was scheduled for Dec 16 in the morning (before the morning break) and has now been pushed to the week of Dec 21-24 according to the Rada website. I'm hopeful this means they are still working out details and will not implement it in its current form.

As I mentioned before, the Legal Division of EE  has recommended the bill be rejected as it will cause conflicts with other areas of the Family Code that are not being changed. Two amendments were filed on Nov 30 but the text of those is not available online.

For those who are interested in following the Rada proceedings, the website is Clicking on that will give you links to the weekly schedules for the Rada. You can then search on the page for the bill number 4313, which is the bill in question. If you click on the bill number, you will go to a page with links to the actual bill as well as to who has voted for/against, etc.

I'm checking the Rada website every couple of days so I will keep you guys updated as I see more. If you have time and enjoy deciphering cyrillic (or like playing with Google translate), the Rada website is a WEALTH of information on random legal stuff for EE!

Oh my - this is just CRAZY!!!!  I have to say I was a little okay with the vote being on December 16th!  We would of known before we left to meet our sweet girl.  But now, we could get there, meet her and be sent home with out her???????  Oh Goodness - this makes me very, very nervous!!!!



  1. I can't believe that you would endure all that you have through this journey already, only to get there, meet sweet Belle, and be sent home without her. We all have to believe that you are on your way to bring your beautiful daughter HOME. Smile, stay positive, and pray:)

  2. Thank you for the info! Very helpful. I am PRAYING!!!!!!

  3. Hi Summer,

    Thank you so much for posting this. We have not heard any updates and we are in EE. Go figure. We will pray that the vote does not take place until is written in a way that benefits both the children and the adoptive families.


  4. Someone told me the other day "you have to get out of the boat to walk on water." Sounds like YOU Are in the same boat as me! Can't wait to see more pics of your beautiful little're ALMOST there!
