I am a 50 year-old, mother of 4 and stepmother of 3, (that makes 7 all together). I have two Bachelor of Arts degrees, in English and Fine Arts from Drew University. I will begin graduate work in Religion this year. I am engaged to a very kind soul, and we will marry on the beach sometime next year. All of our children are in college or graduate school except one child . My son Nikolai, who is 10 and going into 5th grade, and is quite an adorable and special child. We live in Florida, which is a bit backward compared to the Northeast, but the beautiful blue skies, warm,clean ocean water half a mile from our house constantly reminds us of why we are fortunate to have landed here.
