SPEAKER: C. C. LeBlanc
TOPIC: “Adoption in Russia”


Inspired by a couple who had just adopted twins from Russia, a sixty-five year old single French Canadian woman, who immigrated to the United States in the mid 1970’s, embarks on a bold and most challenging adventure to adopt two children from Siberia, a girl thirteen and her brother nine-and-one-half.

From the outset, she had to overcome obstacle after obstacle, but never gave up.

You will laugh and you will cry and you will be spellbound while reading this incredible true story filled with love, determination, courage and yes, sheer guts. Her story, “We’re Going Home,” will captivate you from start to finish.
