I am part of an amazing online community of mothers.
Anya is the daughter of one of the women in my group. She wad adopted from Russia at age 12 after her birth mother passed away. She was adopted by a California family with a strong faith and have raised Anya to have that faith.
She wrote an essay for school entitled "One young girl, one unborn baby, and one very important life changing decision." It is Anya's story of almost being aborted, being born to a 15 year old who died 10 years later of a drug overdose in Russia.
Read it, comment on it, share it on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you for reading it! I am in awe of Anya's perseverance and love.
