Today I receive a "sweet" letter from one of my "cookies". You see when I taught kindergarten, I called all my sweet children "cookies".Brianna said that everyday she would walk into kindergarten and see a smile on my face. It wasn't difficult to have a smile on my face because every day I was going to see my "sweet cookies" . I named them "cookies" because I have always felt that children are our great joy in life. After adopting two sons from Russia in 1994 and 1996 , before and after those years , I still felt that all children were the greatest blessing we could ever have. I lived my dream of adopting and teaching children for over 35 years". All my children" were and are now a great joy of my life . God has truly blessed me to be able to use my life"s talent to teach children and have fun doing it everyday. I was able to "spread my wings" and help my "cookies" to spread their wings".
