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)

Okay, now that we've got a new picture of Simon, maybe y'all can help us come up with a name!!! His name is Sergei, but we think we want to give him an American name, and probably keep Sergei as his middle name. We need suggestions!!

Our favorites are:

Eric (spelled Erich - Mark's idea)
Mark Jr.

I also like Gabriel (Gabe) but Mark hates it!

We both like Adam, but our dog's name is Adam!!

I also like Aaron, but Mark's nephew is Aaron.

Please, help with suggestions! Now that we have a really good picture of him, it should come easier. Thanks!!

I like Erich. I also like Luke or Lucas, Evan, Noah, Joel, and really like Mitchell [Mitch].

Mitchell Sergei sounds pretty good. :)

I just can't wait to hold him, take care of him, and let him know that he is loved no matter what. I like Erich too. Thank you SO MUCH Christine and hubby for taking pictures of him for us. I hope that we can hear of our travel date this Monday.

How about Stephen.....
I feel so sad about his picture! He looks like a different kid from the original picture, like he had not been having enough to eat! i will keep him in my prayers so you can get him home ASAP! I hope to be able to meet him one day.

Wonder what Sergei would like best.... That's a tough decision! I'll pray the right name comes to you clearly. :)

He looks like an Allan, Adam,
Ethan...but one of my favorites is Thomas. It is really tough deciding names. I am sure he will love whatever you pick.
