      Author forgot to tell how much money they are earning on this. In Russian they pay good to take such kids, And most of the kids have parents that use drugs and most of the kids have problems of that, i do not recomend you to take one.

    Being adopted myself, adopting a child, anyone’s child is the most brotherly and human thing anyone can do.

  3. Otis R. Needleman says:

    The best series I have ever seen here. These kids are being raised in a better environment than many American kids. These kids may not have a lot of stuff, but they have their parents’ love and they look happy. My very best to all.

    We adopted one child from Russia two years ago, and it was a once in a lifetime experience with a wonderful little boy. Gonna try for number 2, but the paperwork… ugh.
