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.

My office put on the nicest "homecoming shower" for us!! It was the very first shower I'd ever had put on for me, and I really only expected 4 or 5 people to show up but about 20 people did!! The table was loaded with gift bags and there was a BUNCH of food!! Mark and Erik came and everyone enjoyed meeting Mark and they all thought Erik was the best!! It was a great party!! ...now, for the Thank You notes!!!

Always checking out the food!!!

One of the nurses brought bubbles!!

How wonderfully kind of them! I guess it feels great, being surrounded by people that welcome Eric into your family that way! Of course, he is very very sweet, so how could they not! :-)

Wow, Missy! That's great!

I just think it is so miraculous that just a month ago Erik was an orphan without a future and no one to love him (well you did, but he didn't know that yet) and now he has so mant people excited to meet him and celebrating his arrival into your family!! God is Good!

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.
