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

Sunny Florida, United States
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.

As some of you know, our social worker received a call from someone who told him that he should not approve our homestudy and that we shouldn't be adopting again. If you've been watching my Facebook posts lately, I've posted several things about being angry, being backstabbed, etc. and this is what it was about. The social worker came THIIIIIS close to not approving us!! He will approve us as he does think it's the best thing for the kids, but for his records, he'd like to have names of people who DO recommend us to adopt, just in case this person makes a complaint against him, he just wants to have his documentation in order. UGH.

So, in the comments box, or by private e-mail (mjtaborn@cfl.rr.com) if you don't mind giving me your name so that he can have a list of people who think that it's perfectly fine that we are adopting these kids.


P.S. I hope to have more photos and the video up later today!
