      Upgrade July 26,2017   07/27/17

      We had an upgrade to the system this morning and I had to temporarily disable the theme/colors/look-feel of the forum. The forum was acting strangely and was moving along at a snails pace, so had to perform some tests. After I disabled all the customizations, things improved immensely, so... I am hoping to add our colors back, but till then...bear with me. Thanks!

      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

Reg and Anne's new son

Recommended Posts

Our forum member Reg and his wife, Anne, have been trying to adopt a baby, and I am happy to report the paper work has gone through and they are now waiting to pick up their son in a few months. Here's two of the letters he sent my way. Just had to share. CONGRATS you two!!! :clappin2:

 

==============

 

Dear All ,

 

A few days ago you received my mail telling you we have become proud parents .

 

Attached you find the first pics of our son . One taken when he was 5 months . The other one taken about 10 days ago .

 

We will be flying into Ethiopia to pick him up in about 3 months from now .

 

His name is MATHIEU Jans , pronounced as Matthew but without the ‘W’ and is a real stud…J

 

All the best

Reg

Dear friends ,

 

I’m writing this messages during my lunch break with tears in my eyes .

 

Two hours ago we received a phone call from the adoption agency to congratulate us for becoming parents of a healthy boy , born 17 february 2008 .

 

That’s all we know so far , being very weary from receiving that call we forgot his original name so I have to call them back later this afternoon .

 

Tomorrow they are expecting us at the office where we will get all the info about our son and we can see his face on a picture for the first time .

 

We didn’t have a chance yet to personally inform our family . They’ll find out about it tomorrow .

 

In times of crisis and wars there’s always a light that shines somewhere . Today it shines in our hearts and so it will be for the rest of our life.

 

A very proud mom and dad

 

Reg

More info tomorrow ……

Take care
