I’m proud to be bringing 2 Russians to this wonderful country where they will have the opportunity to be a CEO or a Doctor or a musician or whatever in the world they want to do.
My mom always drilled it into my head that I could truly be anything I wanted to be, I just had to want it bad enough.
We can say that in this country and really mean it.

We are officially registered! Our Region is Tyumen.
Here are some fun and interesting Tyumen facts:
~~Tyumen is the oldest city in Siberia
~~80% of Russia’s oil comes from Tyumen
~~Tyumen is known as “The Energy Center of Russia”
~~TSOGU – Tyumen State Oil and Gas University is one of only 4 Petroleum Universities in Russia
~~Miss Russia 2007, Ksenia Sukhinova, hails from Tyumen
~~It’s a 2 ½ hour flight from Moscow
and the MOST unbelievable fact is that Tyumen is Houston’s sister city - It must be fate!
We were told that there are 2 other families registered in Tyumen right now - one waiting for a girl and one waiting for a boy - none other than us waiting for 2 children.
So I'm very encouraged, especially now that almost all of my blogger friends have gotten referrals (hang in there Joy, you and I are not far behind!).
