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)

Mark and I went to the airport on Friday evening to pick up our precious new family member. We embarrassed ourselves by glancing around nervously and excitedly, with me with my camera on my lap with the lens cap off, ready to snap the moment we saw Mary's crate slide down the chute!! I kept trying to see people's luggage tags as they walked by to see if they were on the same Dallas flight. I even asked a guy if he was! I checked with the luggage ladies several times and they must've thought I was expecting a Westminster champion show dog or something, as nervous and excited as I was!

Nervous energy. ;o)

This lady was so sweet. While our eyes were GLUED to the luggage shoot, she went down to where the regular luggage came out on the belt and got Mary's crate for us! She knew how nervous and excited we were - we thought that was so nice of her.

At long last!!


Now, who are you again???

Absolute love.
