'My Russian Side' Follows the story of Alex Gilbert when he travels to Russia to meet his Birth Parents for the first time.

Hello! Let me start this book by introducing myself. My name is Alex Gilbert and I was born in a small town in Russia, called Arkhangelsk, on the 1st of April 1992. I was adopted from a small orphanage in my birth town and brought to NZ in 1994 when I was 2 years old. I was raised in Whangarei by my wonderful parents Mark and Janice Gilbert. I have a brother called Andrei who was also born in Russia in the same orphanage and adopted with me. Growing up in Whangarei, for me, was easy-going and the years went by fast. I have a lot of great memories from growing up there that I always want to revisit.
