• This is a blog about our family. We, Tony and Anne, are not experienced bloggers in the least and are very technologically challenged. We are currently in the process of adopting three children from Ukraine. We have discovered that life is an adventure.

I am sure that these three new children will bring many new challenges our way and hopefully help smooth off many of our rough edges.
