Every family is unique and has its own story...this is the story of our family, brought together through the dual adventures of childbirth and adoption. It all started with seven year old Kate and her heartfelt wish for a sister...

Another kid from Kazakhstan
See the boy in this very blurry picture? He's my son Madiyar's best friend...and he's from Kazakhstan, too. This was taken while we were in KZ adopting our boys and Borya was also in the process of being adopted. He wasn't a Kidsave kid but he was definitely a boy who stole his American mom's heart at about the same age/time that my Madiyar and Aniyar stole mine. Just like my boys, it took years of trying to bring him home...well worth the wait and he brought a fab little sister with him to boot...oops, once again, I digress. Borya lives in Pennsylvania now but he's currently visiting us here in MA. The two boys are spending a month together, the first two weeks here with us and the next two weeks at Borya's home.
Here the boys are as we drove from PA to MA just last weekend. They're big 16 year olds now, not the 8 year old boys their moms met and fell in love with...but they're still in touch with each other and that's important, especially for these boys whose family consisted of their group mates in the orphanage system. Maybe it's not such a big world after all if we can keep this connection alive...and wait until you see what (or who) else we have coming up this weekend!
In this life, I am Alphamama, mom to a pack of five adolescent wolf pups, married to my Alpha male who fights the corporate wars each day to bring home the bacon. At present, it's my job to keep our teenagers fed, clothed, chauffeured, and safe from harm. No wonder they act like they were raised by wolves...but I'm crazy about them and wicked proud to call them mine.
