‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

I'm Really Missing My Anya Today....

...so here are a few photos of her from our recent visit:

Nastia feeling the baby kick!

They love each other so much.
My ancient hand, blessing baby Sasha.
Anya cooking shashliki for their cousin's birthday.

Anya in her 'new' maternity dress from my friend Kim.
Anya with Oksana ( their Dad's cousin) and Nastia, on the front steps of Oksana's house.
The most beautiful mother-to-be I think I've ever seen...

I love you, my beautiful Anoushka. I wish you were here...


  1. Hi Keri

    I've followed your blog off and on for the last few years but haven't been on in a while and missed the news about Anya being pregnant - congratulations Babushka-to-be! :)

    The reason I popped by today was that I seemed to remember that you used to have a list posted on your sidebar for recommended books on RAD however, you've either taken it down or I totally imagined that. I was looking for it for a friend of mine who is struggling with this with her adopted son. If you have any suggestions for resources, I would love it if you could e-mail me at ambassadoroflove@live.ca


    1. Hi Andrea,

      So sorry that got removed! It was due to a glitch in the amazon "code" I used. I'll send you a list today after work!

  2. She is stunning. That last photo is just gorgeous.
