Joining me at our orphan sponsorship table were Sasha Hennessey and Anna Tomlinson. These two friends from Saint Nicholas orphanage in Siberia had not seen each other for 2 years, and the last time was in Russia. Now, each of them has been adopted by American families (one lives in the Atlanta area and the other lives in Nashville). The show served a second great purpose - to unite these two together again! It was fantastic to see these two friends giggling together, chatting in Russian, and hanging out all weekend.
