One of the things I love most about Ruslana is her heart of gold. This girl doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She doesn't hold grudges, is patient, and loves to help people. One way that I see her pure heart shine through is in letters that she writes to me or to other family members and friends. I have a big box full of her letters and I hope she never stops writing them. Here are a few of my recent favorites:
On an unrelated note, this beauty got her hair cut yesterday. She was soo excited. When she was in the orphanage she never got a say in what they did to her hair, so having the ability to choose means a lot to her. I think she looks pretty darn cute if I say so myself!
She goes back to school in a few weeks and is very excited to begin a new year. In the mean time she's enjoying her new baby sister, playing with Levi, and taking swimming lessons. We are so proud of our eldest girl!
