The People You Meet, Not Necessarily On the Street
Since my arrival here in Uralsk on October 27, 2008 I have been extremely fortunate to meet some wonderful people. They have provided me with positive thoughts, unending prayers, moral support, and a great amount of enjoyment. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge them (and others) here.
Henry, Cecile, Jasmine, & Michael Loretta & Alex Larry, Brenda, & Addie Alain, Sophie, & Benjamin Francois, Zuni, & Sebastian Andre & Oliver
Jeannette & Emilia Kelly, Michelle, & Addison
Aitor, Amaia, & Eldar Inma & Miguel
The Internet & Agency Community
Yahoo Uralsk Rumor Queen TOL & WPA & Kids to Adopt
My Immediate Family
Richard & MaryAnn Todd, Janice, Madison, & Michael John Mark, Ellen, & Eva
My Friends (alphabetically)
Adrianne Cindy Lucy Lynda Mel Susan & Kelley Trina My Single Adoptive Moms Group
And to the many other family, friends and co-workers I can’t remember right this very moment.
Also – a very special thank you to a wonderful young woman named Aliya. She is a translator and coordinator for a different agency but has been so helpful and friendly. She has gone out of her way to show us sights, share her culture, and explain how things work here. With out her, many of us adopting parents would be lost. Figuratively and Literally.
