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.

I wanted to thank each and every one of you who wrote an encouraging word. I was able to copy all of the notes and sent them to my social worker so he can relax and have something to back up his decision to approve the homestudy despite the person who told him he shouldn't. I only used first names for those of you who did not give me permission to do so, so your privacy was protected. Thank you again, very much, for your support and your love!!!!

Thanks for the invite. WOW! I had no idea you were going for teenagers! Congrats! My hat is definitely off to you because the need for teen adoption is so big and the people brave enough to do it seems so small. My heart goes out to these kids left to fend for themselves after "graduating" from an orphanage.

If there's anything more I can do, just let me know....we are, after all, going to be family!

Hey Missy,

I saw your post on the RR board. Seriously, if we can do ANYTHING to help, like maybe if your SW got letters of reference from a bunch of us RR people, or even personal phone calls....maybe that would help?

Let me know if you have any ideas or ways we can help!

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.
