With the arrival of Thanksgiving, I have been concerned with thankfulness and things we tend to take for granted. For me personally, I have so many things I can be grateful for; first and foremost, it’s my life. I am thankful for the fact that my biological parents, halfway around the globe in a little town in Ukraine, chose life for me 21 years ago. I am also thankful that God led two amazing people to become my proud adoptive parents and give me a better life in arguably the greatest country in the world: America! Throughout these years, I have been taught the importance of gratitude for many things in my life.
