An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Wednesday, February 29, 2012
It's very hard, the not knowing. We keep getting calls out of the blue saying that two of our former foster daughters may be coming back to us. Their lawyer is pushing very hard for that to happen, but she can't seem to get anyone to agree with her. They are with an uncle who is not doing a good job of looking out for their safety. However, he's also not doing bad enough that the system is willing to remove the girls. Until then we just keep getting asked to come to court again and throw our whole lives into upheaval. We've repainted and moved beds around and gotten the boys to all share one room so that we can have a room available at any time for the girls. I know God has a plan, but it's hard not knowing what it is.
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".
