We just returned from our family vacation to St George Island. We had a wonderfully restful time. My favorite part of the trip was meeting my new nieces and my nephew from Russia. I didn't really expect any emotional feelings upon meeting them, but almost instantly I was choked up. It was touching to see my brother in the role of father. They are shaping into excellent parents and I am very proud of both he and Kim.

Personally, we have been having some struggles. Today I was tearful and Mercy came to me (remember we brought her home November 21st, she is almost 5 years old.) She pulled up a stool in front of me, sat down on it, took my hands in her two small hands and said: "Mommy when you are sad, I pray for you, I talk to Jesus Mommy." Then she prayed "God, thank you for God. Thank you for Mommy. Help Mommy be happy and have no owies." Then she gave me a big hug and "teleko kisses". (Big kisses.)
