Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

Yesterday's photos

I don't know whether it was the heat or the car trip that made me feel so sick yesterday. I'm still feeling bad today and I went and uploaded these photos in reverse order. I'm feeling a little mean today, so sue me.

The beach in Yalta, or one of them anyway. Lovely no? Everyone wears a bikini, women, young, old, thin, fat...bikini. I had no desire to join them.

No sand here. Tiny pebbles. It reminded me of a parking lot. With a bunch of half-naked people!

This is an elaborate photo place. There are all sorts of fancy costumes to get your picture taken in.

Same portrait studio, different set.

The mountains in the distance run right into the sea. Beautiful!

These sailboat are waiting to take people on rides in the sea, I think.
Some scenery on the way into Yalta.
We drove by this beach at 6am and lots of people were already out swimming.
Another view of the same sandy beach, which happens to be outside of Feodosia. We were very jealous of these people having fun on the beach.
This was our first stop of the day...the administration building of the city of Kerch. We arrived at 7am and tried to sleep in the car until about 8am. But there was a beeping noise that kept bothering me. I found out later that the beeping was a crosswalk that beeps for blind people. Maybe half-deaf people, too, since it was so loud!


  1. Come on... get out that bikini - go swim!! How can you pass up that experience????

  2. A few years ago I went to Mexico and stuck out like a sore thumb in my one piece swim suit! It does look beautiful there and refreshing, so if I were you, I'd be tempted to jump right in!
