An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Wednesday, July 04, 2012
My cousin, Shane, is finally a daddy. I think of his son more as a nephew to me. Caden is so sweet and active. He reminds me a lot of Kevin at that age. He gave me lots of kisses and hugs and let me play with the pool balls with him. You can tell that his dad and his mom, Rachel, are raising him right. I hope I get to see him again in November. It was so great that they were all willing to drive to Ripley to come see us. I could see that Caden's grandma, Aunt Kathy, was just busting at the seems with pride.
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".
