Happy 25th Nadia!

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Hello everyone,

We celebrated Nadia’s 25th birthday last weekend at Vulcan Park, Birmingham, Alabama, approximately two miles from where she disappeared on 3 November 2008.  About 25 people came to help us celebrate including family, friends and professional search team members.  We rode the elevator to the top of the tower in Vulcan Park and released 25 balloons each with a card with Nadia’s information attached.  They soared high in the sky and will eventually land in parts unknown. Later we all got together at O’Henry’s Cafe to sing Happy Birthday and enjoy Nadia’s birthday cake. 

As a family we wish to thank all those who came out in honor of Nadia’s birthday.  We’d also like to recognize a number of businesses who contributed to her birthday celebration.

  • TransAmerica Printing for donating over 50 laminated cards with Nadia’s information printed on both sides.  These were attached to her birthday balloons when they were released.
  • Inflations and Invitations for donating 25 lovely white birthday balloons.
  • O’Henry’s Cafe for donating a delicious chocolate birthday cake.
  • Lamar Advertising for displaying her picture and information on a number of billboards in the Birmingham, Alabama and Montgomery, Alabama areas.
  • Fox 6, NBC 13 and CBS 42 for airing her story and keeping it alive. (please see blogroll)

We’re honored and humbled at the support we have received from the Alabama community, other states, Europe, Eastern Asia and Australia.  You all mean a great deal to us.  We’re blessed to know you and to have you by our side as we continue our search for our daughter, Nadia.

His Love to you all,


A Day Closer to finding Nadia

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

Hello everyone,

We have moved to Alabama.  It is good to be closer to where our daughter, Nadia disappeared in Homewood, AL on 3 November 2008.  We continue our efforts to find her as professional teams prepare for yet another search.  Leads continue to come in and for that we are grateful. Thank you all for taking the step to come forward with information that may lead to Nadia’s whereabouts.  She will be found one day with your help.

We continue our efforts to bring our grandson (Nadia’s son) home to his family.  We’ve waited a long time and have great hopes he will be with us soon as we believe Nadia would want it to be.

To Nadia’s supporters all over the world from the U.S. to Russia to Europe and as far away as Australia we appreciate you and thank you for your continued support.  To her school friends, thank you for your kind words and the love in your heart you carry for Nadia.

May the Lord Bless you all,

Nancy for all
