[When Social Services in Russia removed Emily from her home due to severe abuse and neglect, they also removed four siblings, along with her. The two youngest children, a boy named Vitaly Anatolievich Moisiev and a girl named Maria Anatolievna Moisieva, were legally divorced from Emily, Annie and Lydia and adopted out to different families. We don’t know the whereabouts of Emily’s two siblings and we believe that they don’t know about their other siblings, either. Emily wanted to post letters to Vitaly and Maria on her blog. She really hopes to find them one day. For more information on Emily’s first family, click here: http://johnmsimmons.com/basic-history-of-the-moisievakoshkina-family/ ]

Thank you so much for people that they helping me and loving me and always supporting me, it doesn’t matter what [happens].
[While we withhold some current location information on Emily from something as public as her blog, she longs to find her siblings. Obviously, we would do everything we could to help them to find each other, meet, and have a relationship. Anyone with information about Maria or Vitale is encouraged to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org ]
