About me

Introduction My name is Marina and I am twenty years old. I am currently an intern for Chosen International, which is a faith based non profit that seeks to encourage,educate and support adoptive families. I personally was adopted from Russia at age 7, and have a heart for both the children still in Russia and for those who are now in America. I want to encourage adoptees and inspire hope but at the same time being very honest about my own experiences. I believe we can laugh with each other, cry with each other, and learn from one another. Adoption for an adoptee alot of times is painful,but I believe through openess, we can come to a place where we can celebrate and embrace our adoption.
