Fundraiser Disclaimer

Hello everyone,

Last year on January 18, 2009 the Bottletree cafe in Birmingham, AL hosted the “From Birmingham With Love” benefit for Nadia Kersh.  Nadia’s family wants you to know we were not involved with this benefit or any other benefits for Nadia or our grandson (her son).  We do not know what happened to the proceeds from the “From Birmingham With Love” benefit and Homewood (Alabama) P.D. has been made aware.  

Unless an event is promoted on this website, it is not sanctioned by Nadia’s family.  Also, Nadia’s family is in no way affiliated with any type of “college fund” for her son. 

The search for Nadia conducted last weekend brings us closer to finding her. Hopefully this weekend’s search will allow more to surface and reveal even more new information as professional search volunteers continue to press forward.  We’re eternally thankful to all of them.

Thank you all for standing by us as we continue to look for Nadia and work toward bring her son home. 

His Blessings to you all,

Nancy for all

A Year of Hope

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Hello everyone,

God’s gift of Christmas makes all the difference in the world in our lives if we invite Him in.  Our daughter, Nadia (who disappeared on 3 Nov 2008) did just that.  Her letters are full of rejoicing and giving thanks to God for blessing her world with His love.  Part of that love for her came in the form of her own son, her son who continues to be separated from his family. 

We mourn our precious Nadia and we mourn our precious grandson (we are prohibited from sharing his name).  We hope this year we will find Nadia and bring her home to rest.  We hope this year we will bring our grandson home to know he is safe and loved.  We hope this year things will be set right with him in the complicated Alabama system.  

We continue to be patient and lift up our sorrows and concerns to the Lord for He is forever sovereign and His Grace and Mercy endure.  We will continue to be patient as we mourn Nadia, her son and her grandpa, who passed three weeks after Nadia disappeared. 

What has happened to our family (daughter missing, separated from our grandbaby) could also happen to you.  We lived out of state at the time of Nadia’s disappearance and we were not told for three days that she had vanished.  Many things happened during those first crucial 36 hours.  Nadia’s story and the story of her son is a horrendous story and one day it may be told so that other families can protect themselves against needless heartache.  

Remember to protect your loved ones, give them a special hug, kiss and tell them how much you love them.  There is much darkness in this world many of us don’t even want to think about, but it’s there.  We need to love each other, look up towards the Lord and hand our fears and worries over to Him as He would want us to.

We hope you all have had a blessed Christmas and wish you a wonderful and peaceful New Year.  

In His amazing love,

Kevin, Nancy, (in her absence) Nadia, John, Charlie and (in his absence) our grandson
