Many of you know about my daughter, Corradina. She earned a Special Olympics Gold Medal in basketball at Pennsylvania's Regional competition in Kutztown this past weekend. But she did something even more remarkable than that. She just tested as reading at a 4th-Grade level. This is remarkable for someone whom we were originally told would never read at all when we adopted her and her older brother about 13 years ago when she was about 3.5 years old. I'm so proud of her I could bust. I'm very proud of my son, Henry, too.

Just after we brought our children home from Russia.

This shows our children in Russia and then recently late last fall.

They've come a long way, and far more than in miles and years.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.
