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)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Tomorrow, July 13, is a pretty big day! My daughter Natasha leaves for Parris Island, SC for Marine Corps boot camp (Go, Natasha!!) and our LAST corrected document FINALLY gets submitted to the officials in Ukraine!!! Hopefully at that time, we will get an appointment date of when we can go over there! We are sick to death of waiting. It has been 8 months since we first committed to adopting Simon and that is too long. Our little fella needs us!

So, tomorrow is a rather big day for two of my kids: one who officially grows up, and one who takes an important step towards finding a life. It'll be a good day, I think.
(It looks like he's nervously saying, "Please, please please...!")

(This was one of the last pictures I have of Natasha when she was still home with us, so I treasure it. We had a great day that day!)

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
