    Hope y'all will indulge me here, I just had a personal holy-shit moment at the polls:

    Three years ago, my daughter was 1-year-old and living in an orphanage in St. Petersburg, Russia.
    Today she went with me to the polls.

    God bless America.

    BTW, if anybody has any questions about international adoption, or traveling to Russia, send me a PM. I'll be happy to answer any of your questions.
  2. I now have another good reason to vote.
    Congrats to the little Muscovite mustard.

    Awesome. I thought China was the official U.S. supplier of one-year-old girls, though.

    Yeah, I thought Russia only supplied us with 21-year-olds.

    JK mustardbased, kudos to you for taking your daughter to the polls.

    My 1-year-old went with me to vote.

    He's taking a nap now, the "I Voted Today" sticker on his shirt.

    Actually, I got her to say "disenfranchised" and six lawyers appeared out of nowhere and started asking her questions.

    Congrats, Mustard.

    And for Xmas, you're gonna buy her a # 87 jersey, right?

    Well done, Mustard.

    An organisation run by a woman in my neighborhood sponsors about 30 Ukrainian orphans every year. they come and stay with host families for a couple of weeks to experience America. Usually about half of those end up getting adopted. We have about 10 Russian speaking kids in the neighborhood that absolutely freaked out over Halloween and didn't know what to make of it -- until they got bags of candy. Then it was really cool.

    In a few years, Uma and I will probably join that party.
