It is hard to believe five plus years have passed since I last wrote about myself, then I was a young girl of fourteen, now I am nearing twenty, am in college and doing well as is Milena.
I am navigating the world as a young woman with Cerebral Palsy which leaves it very difficult for me to walk, but I am navigating the world and making a place for myself as is Milena.
We have been in America for nearly a decade now, and are blessed because of that. I believe America has given my family opportunities that Russia never could have. I harbor no ill will against my homeland, but America is my home now.
Somethings that happen here break my heart though, those that fight for our country have to fight simply to live and eat? What is wrong with that picture? I do not know.
I am studying to become a teacher, because I have a passion for learning and I want to teach others. I want to work with children with disabilities, simply because it is something I understand.
Life has taken me far, and I promise to write more regularly about myself, and to eventually tell what has happened to me in the past five years, but for now I just wanted to let others know that I am doing well and continue to be blessed as are my parents.
