Misha shared his birthday with kids from the orphanage. We joined them at a learning center (where the heat was not working at the time). The young people learned how to make fish soup, which they served for dinner. We brought Russian cake. The clan sang him the traditional Happy Birthday Song in English and Russian, and they had their own additional song as well. Sometimes, in Russia, we all feel a little orphaned. But then, coming together for these celebrations helps everyone feel part of the family.
