We are fast approaching the two year anniversary of a day I do not want remember but cannot forget.
On Dec 26th 2013 Putin closed Russia to Americans adopting. With a stroke of his pen he broke hearts, shattered families, took hope away from orphans, and to many Russian orphans handed over a death sentence.
One of my friends Katrina Morriss can never forget that day either. Her daughter Natasha is one of those countless orphans now stuck in Russia. Here in America she has a family who desperately longs for her. The future is unknown, unsettling and scary.
Katrina has never rested since Putin wrote into law the dismal future of all Russian orphans. She has fought for awareness and to keep the children of Russia in the spotlight. She refuses to let them slip into the darkness where they will be forgotten by everyone. Out of sight out of mind works for Putin but not for Katrina!
