I’m finally home after a month in Virginia! I had to go to court to petition for custody for my nephew Dmitri, which I was granted, and I’m executor for my brother in law so I have about a million things to do to settle his estate.
Dmitri is here with us. He’ll have a few days before we can get him enrolled in school but so far he is doing well in his new home. I am really excited about all the services and help we can get for him in California.
Thanks for all your good thoughts and messages over the past year. Last year at this time I was still reeling from Ric’s terminal cancer diagnosis. I had no idea that in such a short time I would lose my Sister Miriam to pneumonia, my brother in law Ric to cancer, and become primary caregiver and guardian for Dmitri.
He is such a special boy and we are so thankful for everyone who has helped him during this extremely difficult time. Maya is delighted to have him here and chatters non stop about him and how she is going to share her girl toys. Children are a wonderful gift, I’ll give you that.
