The Russes gave to me…
Two brothers and two sisters.
Having four kids that were four and under all at home, was often more than we could handle. Luckily they do a great job of taking care of each other.
They welcomed Alex (Chubby at the time) in to the fold well before he was even born.
The first time Lila got to hold Alex she said, “He is way better than a doll.” Lila’s birthday was last month. At the time all of the kids had a really bad cough while they were recovering from the H1N1 flu. Today out of the blue she told us, “I love Alex so much that on my birthday, when I made my wish, I wanted to wish that I could fly. But I wished that Alex’s cough would get better instead, because I didn’t want him to die. I can just make my wish to fly next year.”
