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)

This is just precious! You got some real beautiful pictures of Erik! I remember seeing his pic a few years ago, he reminded me so much of Jimmy at his age.:) I am so excited he is finally coming home. What a Blessing!!:)

wow... I don't think there is a bad picture of him! What a joyful little boy! You may have to pry him out of Marks arms to get your turn to hold him! They look like they have always been together! Makes me shed happy tears! :)

Does this video come with free boo-hoo towels? Geeshhh.. You know - when you are there - you only see one perspective, then when you see pictures (history in action - frozen in time) you see a whole different side. And - you are so right about prying him out of my arms.

Yes, Missy, I DID see the photo montage. I have been checking your blog daily and sharing in your joy. I know it's hard for you to be home while Mark and Erik are still halfway across the world, but I bet your boys are glad to see you, and your babies (I mean dogs), too. I'm so excited for you guys! Can't wait until you're all home together!
