Description:
Because two people fell in love. I want this sign in my house...one day! lol
but doing the page was a great way to spend the evening.
In 1990, way back then, we thought pregnancies and babies would fill our home. Ten years went by, and many tears and pain. Adoption always seemed to expensive and out of our reach. Then we fell into foster adoption. Our eldest came to use in 2001, and we added three more, twin girls and one son. The nest began to empty, and once again we reached out to the foster system, for 3 more amazing sons. It has not been easy, our hearts have been hurt, lives changed dramatically, but together Tony and I have held to each other, our faith in Christ Jesus to raise our children. We realize it isn’t always easy, but in the long run, it will be worth it. Now, we do smile more and guide, than bark orders. We are learning as the kids do also. Would we do it again? Yes, but find more time to laugh and not as rigid. Live Life. Love.

      this is my all time favorite page in the history of pages everywhere! lol I so love big families!! When I was a single mom to 4 & my world was crashing in, along came my Kinsman Redeemer. He also brought 2 sweet little lambs with him that were 2.5 & 4.5 at the time. That's how I got my 6! God can grow families different amen? Keep up the good work my friend - a child is the only thing you can potentially take to Heaven with you SO IT'S ALL WORTH IT!
