Maximus “Max” Stephen Eimers
Max is eight years old. His birthday is 09-27-99. Max is in the second grade. He likes to draw and paint. Max is considerate and caring of the other children and caregivers. Max is very proud of us as his parents and has been the star of the orphanage the last few weeks. Max is the only one of the three that has a clue that we don’t speak or understand Russian!

Max and Misha meet each other again after over a year of being separated in different orphanages. (The orphanages were only 1,000 feet apart)

Mikhail “Misha” James Eimers
Misha is six years old. His birthday is 07-12-01. Misha is in kindergarten. Misha loves trains and candy. Misha is never one to be too shy. Misha is probably the most sensitive and outgoing of the three boys. His eyes are full of life!

Vitali Luke Eimers
Vitali is a bundle of energy and four years old. Vitali’s birthday is 03/29/04. He is a free spirit but has grown fonder of us with each visit. Little Vitali is apt to climb up you while you are not looking and then tumble off into a heap. Vitali is the odds on favorite to be the first boy to go get stitches. Vitali likes anything he can carry around and show off and tell everybody it is HIS!Vitali our blue eyed bundle of Energy!
Vitali loves being up in the air. His first English word was "again" his second was "I love you."
Vitali on the run again!
Court went well and the judge declared us parents of Max, Misha, and Vitali!!!!!! We are back in the states now because
This is the end of the beginning! How is it going to play out? I don’t know! We still have about 3 weeks of chasing papers in
For those who have partnered with us financially we cannot thank you enough. We had financially prepared to adopt these boys for several years but the total direct and indirect costs were over $60,000. Your generous gifts have allowed Max, Misha, and Vitali to have a family. We cannot adequately thank you enough!!

Hannah 8, Max 8, Misha 6, Annette 5, Vitali 3, and Ivy 2
