pray for our family in russia. our girl, nastya, passed away yesterday from a brain tumor. this sweet smile was hard to capture on camera. she loved making us chase her to snap a shot, so we always had to be extra sneaky. she understood more english than she let on and had quite the sense of humor. she took great care of her little sister, kristina. we can't imagine not seeing her little grin from around the corner next time we visit. i know she rests with god in his arms, which is so comforting.
we love you, nastya.
