Today, Vera’s on her toes; that is, she’s taking ballet and folk dancing classes (and though no ballroom dancing yet, she’s just having a ball).
Five years ago, she was living in a baby home in Russia with dozens of other children, waiting for her family. Since the early nineties, WACAP has helped hundreds of children living in Russian institutions find the love of a family and, in 2008, WACAP helped David and Tami Jones bring their daughter home.
This active preschooler will soon begin kindergarten, but right now, Vera’s enjoying summertime with her parents and her friends in school and at church. (She’s excited that one of her ballet friends will also be one of her schoolmates in the fall!)
Sharing more about their “darling Gwynivere,” Tami and David write,
“Vera loves living in our Washington town, and she adores our day trips to the mountains so she can play in the snow (snowballs, sledding and snow angels). It’s really great that we have friends who adopted five children from Russia — two from the exact birth city as Vera. We saw them often at church … and Vera saw four of the five children at her school this past year. (Many play dates!)”
From dance studio to classroom to mountain top, we also wish you a happy summer, Vera, filled with the joy of family.
