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)

Happy birthday, Erik!  Eight years ago, you entered this world unwanted and unloved.  For 5 very long years, you waited for someone to love you and treasure you for the miracle you are.  Your dad, brothers and I were so blessed when we finally found you and brought you into our home!  You have blessed us SO much for the past 3 years - our family would have been so boring and stale without you!  You bring fun, happiness, unadulterated JOY, silliness and innocence into our lives and we can't imagine life without you now.  Your birthmother and father blessed the world the day they brought you into it and now you will bless the world right back!  WE LOVE YOU, ERIK!!  Happy birthday, son!!!

I wrote this poem
Each of us are Special
Each of us different,
No one is the same
Each of are us are unique in our own way,
Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
It doesen't matter what other's say
we are special anyway.

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.

It is not the will of your Father that any one of these little ones should perish. Matt. 18:14

Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. Matt. 18:5

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
