Marina loves to sing and she learns very easily that way. My father always said to me, " I wish they would put your lessons to song. You'd never forget them." So we sing and we learn every night at bedtime. MJ and Lani both love to hear mom sing, unlike the rest who run when I begin a song. I still sometimes catch Marina singing one of her old songs from the orphanage. They have a kind gentleman there who comes from the village at least once a week with his accordion and teaches the children new songs. They gather in the main room and sing for as long as they let them. They're always happy to perform for any visitors and never want to quit. I think that is where Marina developed her love for music.
Here's the two birthday girls. Marina was tired after a long day and Miss Emily was making eyes at her friend Daniel who came for the festivities. A very tiring but a great day!
As many of you know we originally planned to get two little girls that we have known for about three years. We were only able to get Marina in December because of paperwork problems with the other little one. Shortly after we got home we were notified that the other girl is now available. We were surprised as we were told it could take up to a year to get things straightened out. She will be 12 in September and is the size of a two year old. We spent so much time with her on our last visit there and I will share some pictures with you. Our paypal account is up and ready to receive any donations you feel led to give. Thank you in advance for your support in our journey.
Please help us bring Heather home! God bless you!
