Sergei attended our area's Pennsylvania State Police Camp Cadet last week. We dropped him off last Sunday and had no contact with him until Friday night when we attended the graduation ceremony.
And my boy made his mama proud.
Out of 55 cadets, Sergei was one of nine chosen as an outstanding camp cadet, and he's got the plaque to prove it! And after the ceremony, all the counselors and police volunteers just couldn't say enough about how well Sergei did and how much everyone liked him!
You just all need to run with me here a minute, k? Sergei has come a LONG way in the last year since he's come home. We had some really dark moments when we could not see the next step ahead. So this is a BIG deal for us! To God be the glory!
And I got tears in my eyes, when I heard Sergei had been chosen to help lower the flag at the end of the ceremony. A child, Ukrainian by birth, adopted into an American family, and now having the privilege of lowering his new home country's flag. That was monumental to me.
Don't ever doubt God's ability to work in the seemingly impossible situations in your life.
