OOPS

Have you ever gotten your kids mixed up? I do all the time ... in fact I usually go through parts of name before I get it right ... like BekEmma or EmmBeck, well today was one of those days. It appears that I got Oksana and Maria mixed up ... Oh I was right that Maria is the little girl from the dump, but the photo of the little girl with the dog is not Maria, it is her new sister Oksana. Oksana is the little girl that knew of Larisa, and walked for days to find her hoping and praying all the way that Larisa would not turn her away... that HOPE kept her going....
Well here is a photo of the family ... I will let you figure out which is which , I can tell you that Larisa is the lady standing in the back, her mother is sitting in the front, and the little boy in the front with the ball is Maria's brother Valera.
By the way don't let the "sour puss" faces scare you... it's a formal pose for any photo.. I know... I think it is a Russian thing....but I must say, I think that the Babushka has it mastered...

That Babushka scares me! I think I saw her "mug" on "Russia's Most Wanted" on the Tokmok Community TV Channel while I was there. :)

Hi..we just visited the family and they are doing well - waiting for your return John,Julie! Grandmother looks just like me - my Slavic family roots. I have a picture of the two of us together and it is amazing - we could be mother and daughter.

Blessings to you...they all miss you - we arrived back home today.
