OH HAPPY DAY - A brief history of Oksana's returning to her father's house and a wonderful new chapter in her life.
December 31, 2010, and a very sad day in our lives ~~ because the following day, January 1st, 2011, Marc was taking Oksana to live with her mother in Indiana. She was 1 month and 19 days shy of turning 16.
Her visit in June, 2011 with her brother Aric. Aric is grinning from ear-to-ear because in that 6 months time he had grown taller than she. Aric is 4 years younger than Oksana.
On the beach in Florida, 2013, where our family spent Christmas with son David. Marc flew Oksana in to be with us - 18 years old.
She purchased 2 pair of dress slacks, one with a matching short jacket, two dresses (one of which is in the first photo), 7 or 8 tops (can't remember for sure!), a cardigan sweater, another button-up sweater and 2 pair of dress shoes. All for under $300!!!
We are believing within about 90 days, if she does really well and we know she can and will, she will be given a permanent position and a real opportunity to work herself up and make a career for herself.
