First time I meet Grandpa and Grandma in Russia. I love my Grandpa and Grandma. I went with them a movie, take pictures.
My grandpa have a stroke and after, he was in the chair. [A couple of years after Emily came home, my father had a stroke. He has been in a wheel chair, since.]
My grandpa came to visit me with my dad to the orphinige. Also we have fun together. Grandpa and Grandma went with me to Flad Mos can [the hotel we stayed at in Far East Russia was called the Vlad Motor Inn] and we have a nice dinner. We have hot BBQ chicken and we have so much fun. First time Grandma and Grandpa we go to the zoo and I ride animal like camel and we have so much fun. Also we look [at] animals and they amazing. And my sister Annie, she likes animals too.
My grandpa and grandma they came to the orphinige then I [k]new that I will come to the Amarica.
I feel bad because I got scared about my grandpa when he have a stroke. And my dad told me that he was in the wheelchair. I care about my grandparents.
My grandpa and grandma we went to New York and I got ice cream cone. Children need grandparents because they need love, home, shelter, food. Because children like grandparents. Also children need addication [education] and support. Children like me need a good way prompted. Disabilities like me need help or take care of.
I will love to say my grandpa and grandma thank you that you got me from Russia and be freedom and be happy. And that I am luky girl. Nobody have chance to come to Amarica like me. And I want to say my family and friends thank you so much. I want to support children with freedom. I never thought my grandpa and grandma and my family cheach [teach] me a be a good person. We did so much fun, zoo, or New York, or Mockow [the c in Russian makes the sound of an s in English] because we went to church like a bell. And bell very loud and beautiful. [On the way home from Russia, we stopped in Moscow for a couple of days. Emily was fascinated with the churches at the Kremlin and one of the churches had a big bell.]
And my sister Annie we have lots a snow we walk.
Bell it is big.
Bell it is nice.
Bell it is snow.
[I don’t know if she is combining events, but there was no snow on our trip home, or in Moscow when we came through.]
