Faux Hawk Girl
"Mommy, can we try to do a faux hawk?" These were not words I expected to hear from my 10 year old daughter. Jordan had seen it somewhere and wanted me to braid her hair into this style. I wasn't really sure I could do it. It took hours. Hours of Jordan laying down on her side on the couch while I braided her hair upside down. But it looked pretty cool when it was done. All her friends and her teacher thought so, anyway.
I'm a 38 year old Christian mom of 10 kids. I have six girls; Danya age 15, Gloria age 14, Jordan age 13, Brianna age 13, Katie age 6, and our other 6 year old Karyie. My four sons include Michael age 12, Shane age 11, Kevin age 9, and Ryker age 4 months. 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 19 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".
