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)

UGH! An issue came up today that is going to involve more paperwork, and might be a problem in getting the stupid homestudy done!!! I am so sick of this stupid homestudy being such a pain - it was supposed to be a breeze, since it was an update!!

Prayers, please, that things smooth out and I can rest easy!!

Also, I got a very nasty e-mail from the woman who first listed the kids trying to tell me that they are under guardianship (because they are not in a regular orphanage) and I can't get guardianship removed because the director of the home is out of the country. I'm not worried about it (I forwarded it to my facilitator and she said it's okay), but just having a nasty e-mail in my box was not something I needed at this time. This woman is seething that I am not working with her (and did I mention that I am saving over $10,000 by NOT working with her??) and is filled with bitterness.

But the real issue is the paperwork issue in the first paragraph. Prayers, please, if you don't mind!!

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.
