An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Saturday, December 17, 2011
I've been spending so much time braiding "Hoop's" and "Happy's" hair these past couple of months, I think the other girls are starting to get a little envious. It's true, their hair needs do mean that they get hours of one-on-one time with me weekly. Just recently, Brianna and Danya asked if they could have their hair braided special, too. I gave it a shot, although it's really not anything like braiding the other girls' hair. What I'd really like to try is braiding all six of my girls' hair in the same style sometime. Maybe I'll do it on a Saturday night, so they can match on Sunday morning.
I'm a 39 year old Christian mom of 10 kids. I have six girls; Danya age 17, Gloria age 15, Jordan age 15, Brianna age 14, Katie age 8, and our other 8 year old Karyie. My four sons include Michael age 14, Shane age 13, Kevin age 11, and Ryker age 2. I also was a foster mom for about 5 years. In 2009 we adopted two of the 33 kids we've fostered. In April 2012 we adopted three more! I've been happily married to the love of my life, Daniel, for 21 years!
For privacy reasons we cannot post identifying pictures of foster children. That's why their faces are covered or only the backs of their heads are shown. We also give them nicknames to protect their privacy.
The Mini Homeschoolers
Danya and Gloria are "The Mini Homeschoolers" in a series of YouTube videos where they answer questions about homeschooling from a younger perspective. These videos are based on the ones created by two funny homeschooled young men called "Ask the Homeschoolers".
