10 Years? Already?

I simply can't let today slip by without mentioning that this is the 10th anniversary of our adoption of biological sisters from the town of Klinsty in the region of Bryansk in extreme western Russia. Christina, Hope and Faith (l-r) were 7, 3, and 5 when we adopted them. They have brought immeasurable joy to our family and we thank God for them daily! The most prominent characteristic of these sisters is that are all avid self-taught learners. If they develop an interest, they educate themselves. Each of us in the family has learned so much from them about subjects we would have never thought to pursue ourselves. Their zest for life is contagious! What a gift these older-Russian orphans have proven to be!
