Waiting for the Parade

Well I just finished a 3 night run of the play "Waiting for the Parade" with 5 senior girls at Kiev Christian Academy! We had a blast and had a great turn out-- probably close to 250 over the 3 nights! It was fantastic and so much fun. I was so proud of my girls and our audiences were very impressed as well-- I received so many compliments on their behalf. I've known most of these girls since they were in 8th grade, so I've had the opportunity to see them grow and mature over the years into very talented actresses and just awesome young women. I'll sure miss them next year! Usually I just direct one show a year at KCA- in the spring, so this was an added bonus-- for me and them! So now that we've finished this one we have to hurry up and start rehearsing for the next one-- May will be here before we know it! Enjoy the photos!

Hi Karen,
What a delight to read your blog and to see what you are doing with the children! We will be in Ukraine March 4-12 visiting some orphanages. Hoping to adopt in 2009 would love to know about the children you brought to the U.S.
What region are you in? Please e-mail me back.

Hi Tammy,
Don't see an email address for you--nothing pops up when I click on your name. Could you give me an email address? Or email me through the email link :)
