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.

About Me

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.

My Blog List

Sunday, August 30, 2009
Well, after having a private blog for so long, I've decided to go public, or at least try it! Court is over and all we are waiting for is for my men to come HOME!!!

I've removed pictures of the other kids in the orphanage now that I'm public, but if you see one that I missed, please let me know so I can remove it.

I can't access my blog these days for some reason, but I can post... at least, I THINK I can - I can't see my blog to check it!!

Mark and Erik are taking the overnight train from Kramatorsk to Kiev tonight, then Monday and Tuesday they'll finish up at the Embassy and we'll pick them up in Orlando Wednesday evening! YAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!

Other than that, news is slow around here. The boys and I are just sitting around, waiting for Mark and Erik to come home. We're in a bit of a "holding pattern". Work, school, dogs, chores.

Missy, Your video and the perfect song you picked to go with it made me cry. How beautiful all of you are and the love and bonding in those pictures just reached out to my heart. I am so happy for you and soon you will have your son and your husband home with you. I am praying for you that this time will go quickly. Rhonda

They are amazing as well!!

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.

It is not the will of your Father that any one of these little ones should perish. Matt. 18:14

Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. Matt. 18:5

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
