GREAT AND EASY RECIPES FOR RUSSIAN FOOD ON-LINE

For anyone who adopted older children, you might like to give them a taste of home.  I found a great website that offers easy "home cooking" Russian-style.  My son Ilya who has only been with us a couple of years, said about one dish, "This tastes just like grandma's!"  (High praise, indeed.)Have fun with it!  http://www.enjoyyourcooking.com/See More

"I kind of missed that "checking in".... I still have one more for Ilya and then we're done, I guess. (Always hoping for one more...)"

Annie Kitching replied to Kathleen Penzien's discussion Post Adoption Get Togethers in the group Michigan Adoptive Families
"Our group of families who adopted from Russia get together all the time for cultural activities, language classes and more. I know it makes a lot of sense because most of our kids were adopted as older children and need that connection to their…"

Annie Kitching commented on Patti B.'s group Michigan Adoptive Families
"We adopted four times through Adoption Options Worldwide in Troy. It is a small agency that I found to be absolutely honest and scrupulous. We paid so much less for our adoptions (Russia) than anyone else I know....it was a miracle."

"Annie, You truly are an inspiration! God has really given my husband and I a desire to do what is needed for children without parents. We want to adopt as many as the Lord will bring to us. Unfortunately we are at the mercy of the county workers who…"

"We've adopted four - but they were all older children when they came to us. I can't imagine what it would be like adopting a baby. But, our children have been an enormous blessing!"

Annie Kitching replied to Viviana Rocha's discussion Holding my girl back at school? in the group Adopting Older Kids
"Obviously, being held back is useless unless something changes. However, if this child is dealing with language-learning then something will be changing - her vocabulary and fluency. If she is processing the adoption and dealing with so many…"

Hello!

I am a Religious Education Director at a large parish in mid-Michigan. We have adopted four older children from Russia, and have a foster child from two disruptions (also Russian).Our pastor just gave me permission to start an orphan ministry in our parish. I know this is not uncommon in Protestant churches, but rare in Catholic ones. I'm so excited to get this going!See More

Annie, You truly are an inspiration! God has really given my husband and I a desire to do what is needed for children without parents. We want to adopt as many as the Lord will bring to us. Unfortunately we are at the mercy of the county workers who are in charge of these children. I know that some workers view what they do with passion and a heart for children there are others who are just doing a government job. It is very frustrating. I praise the Lord for all of the prospective adoptive parents who are waiting. Good to meet you, Jo
