The Perfect Son

We all know that with the New Year comes the opportunity to reflect on what we've accomplished in the past year and set some new goals for the upcoming year.

On New Years Day we were pleased that Micah sat down and wrote his own goals for the year (with no prodding from us!)

Here are his goals.  I especially like #15.  :-)

  1. Be nicer to Guster the dog.
  2. Make more friends.
  3. Control temper / be nicer.
  4. Be more reverent in church.
  5. Exercise more.
  6. Get over stage fright.
  7. Get over fear of dark.
  8. Get over fear of masked murderer.
  9. Don't brag when I win.
  10. Have fun even if I lose.
  11. Write more letters.
  12. Don't pick scabs.
  13. Record my songs.
  14. Play more sports.
  15. Get three Ukrainian orphan's to the U.S.A.
  16. Learn gymnastics.
  17. Eat a better diet.
  18. Be a better artist.
  19. Be a better dancer.
  20. Be a better speller.
  21. Do more school.
  22. Be better at school.
  23. Write a play/book/movie.
  24. Go to bed earlier.
  25. Wake up earlier.
When you add all the life altering changes we were already planning to make, to the changes I'm about to see in Micah...  Well, it looks like it's going to be quite a year!!!

As for my resolutions... so far I only have one.

1.  Keep breathing.

Hope your year is looking great so far!


We leave for Ukraine in 6 days!  We still have $19,392.92 left to raise.  I can hardly believe how much success we've experienced in such a short period of time!  However, we still have a ways to go and a short period of time to get there!  Do you have a dollar you can spare?  Or maybe $5?  Any donation amount will help get us closer to our goals.  And don't forget what a difference you will make in the lives of Albina, Alina and Maks by donating to our cause!  
Thank you so much!!!
