DM – They fought tirelessly for the last two years to give three Russian orphans a loving home and family.
Finally after jumping through many hoops, Kim and Alan Clark were able to bring the Siberian girls back to America.
The Clarks, from Tennessee, were first made aware of the plight of orphans in China and Russia.
Mr Clark described to The Tennessean that it was like a calling for his wife of 26 years to go and find them a daughter. Little did they know that three daughters would be coming back with them after much tireless work on their part.
The sisters they came to adopt were Kristina, 13, Nastia, 11, and Natasha, nine. At first the government and agencies said no five times, in part because of the case of Artem Hansen – who was adopted from Russia in 2009 before being put alone on a plane back to Russia less than a year later.
Looks like the Clarks just got a head start on Rio De Janeiro 2016, Their next venture is to “adopt” two fifteen year old Chinese twins who got an early start as pole vaulters just looking for a meal.
I know what you’re up to Clark Family, Cant pull one over on me… this story sounds eerily familiar. Tennessee families just doing work:
2012 Olympic Team vs. “The Dream Team”
This has been up for debate for some time now. I actually hate debating things that cannot technically be proven, but this one was just too juicy to leave alone, especially since many of the people are leaning on the wrong side of the debate. Lets start with “The Dream Team”; Of course Michael Jordan is everyone’s first point in their debate. I get he changed the sport, I get he was ahead of his time, what people seem to forget though that just like humans, sports evolve. Yes he evolved faster than some back then, but as you can see today the sport has changed. Lets just say if a 6 ft 9’ 275 lb Lebron James was playing back in 1992 he would have been head and shoulders (literally) above Michael Jordan. The next point “Dream Teamers” like to bring up is the height difference and the discrepancy in big men. I agree this could be an issue for the 2012 team to overcome, but tell me how “The Dream Team” with all its height are gonna guard a 7ft guard the likes of Kevin Durant? “Dream Team” loyalists like to bring up Magic and Bird. This one’s easy for me, Magic was in his 2nd year of his “HIV” and Bird could barely stand cause of his back issues. Finally, “Dream Teamers” love pointing out their margin of victory. This one is so warped as the world was just catching on to the sport at the time and weren’t nearly at the level they are at now. At no point did “The Dream Team” play the likes of Manu Ginobli and Serge Ibaka. The bottom line, like I referred to earlier, is the sport and humans have evolved. You take the best defender Scottie Pippen and put him on Lebron, that still leaves Kobe, Durant, Westbrook, Anthony, Paul, and on and on, all of which are faster and stronger than their counterparts on “The Dream Team”. 2012 Olympic win a close hard fought game, but the 92’ boys are just no match for the speed, power and athleticism of what the world has to offer today.

Oh and Mike Tyson beats Muhammad Ali 10 times out of 10.
