Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

>Well, after some long and stressful and thoughtful months, we've come full circle. We had originally committed to adopting Simon last fall, but due to fears surrounding travel (Mark was confident, I was NOT) we backed out on him and decided to adopt two gorgeous little girls from Armenia. Mark's heart was not in it, though, and it was hard for me to fully give them my heart, knowing that Simon was supposed to be ours, but we "left him". The long and the short of it is... We are adopting Simon after all!!! We are VERY excited and are working hard to get it all done QUICKLY, as he is overdue to be transferred to the mental institution where he probably will not survive long. With God's help (how else?) we will get this done ASAP and bring our precious little guy HOME!!! I have made my blog private until he comes home for security reasons. So if you are reading this, you are one of the "chosen ones". LOL

PLEASE pray for us that we can get this done quickly, get all of the finances needed in time, and help with details like finding places for the kids and dogs while we're gone, getting good airfares, etc. Thank you!!

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
