He is 28 years old. He started playing piano when he was only 4. That is amazing.I can't even do it. Andrew loves music to. He is so cute when he hears Abraham playing he goes over to him.

Happy Birthday Gracie



Today is Gracie's b-day. She is turning 8 years old. She is a big girl now. She has been home with us 1 year and a couple month. She has turned out  pretty good from the way she was. She came to our home Christmas Eve from Bulgaria. It was our Christmas present. This is Gracie's 2nd b-day with us. She went out with Mommy and Daddy to eat breakfast out this morning. Tonight we are watching her favorite movie "My Friends  Tigger and Pooh". She would sit there and  watch  the whole movie. She is so happy to have  her b-day. We are too.I am pretty sure she never had a b-day before. It's really sad because there are alot of kids that would never have a b-day.I pray that those kids would have a b-day someday. Gracie Happy Birthday. I love you my little sister and always will.

A good movie

Facing The Giants - DVD  We watched this movie last night. It's such a good movie it makes me want to see it more than once.  It's a family movie and it has such a powerful message. We should never give up on what we believe. Have Faith! If you haven't seen it I encourage you to see it.

Lost tooth



Last nigth my brother Andrew lost his tooth. I think this is his 4th tooth that he has lost. Oh he was so upset. We think it was his bottom tooth. He has been doing really well. Today I was looking through his pictures he has change so much. You really can tell on those pictures.  I thank God for brining him to my family. God has taught me how to be patient and loving with Andrew.

Rest For The Weary

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Jesus gives us the ultimate rest, the confidence we need, to escape the frustrasion and chaos of the world around us. Rest in Him, and don't worry about what lies ahead. Jesus Christ has already taken care of tomorrow... This is what Jesus says to us to all of us. I read  this in my Devotion. It really helped me to not to wory about things. I know that God has everything in control. Today is Mon try not to worry what is going to happen tomorrow or the next day. Trust in the Lord.

My Family



This is my family...I was adopted  from Ukraine in 2005. This is my first family I ever had. My bio- mom had me when she was 13.After that I was in an orphanage for 13 years. No one wanted me before this special family. I thank God that my bio-mom had me and kept me. What I mean by "keeping me" that she didn't do an abortion but let me live. She gave me a life. When I was in my orphanage I prayed that God would give me a family. I prayed for a very long time but nothing happened. I did not gave up. I still prayed that God will bless me with a wonderful family. I want to tell you all blog readers never give up on your hope. Trust in the Lord. It would not happen when you want it to but it will when God is ready for you it to. I love my family so much. Thank you Mom and Dad for adopting me. I love you guys.
