An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Sunday, August 26, 2012
Fire at church?! Actually, it was just a false alarm. But we did get the building cleared in a very short amount of time. We were all sitting in the sanctuary when the alarm went off. The pastor told us to head on out and our children would meet us outside. Sure enough, the teachers brought them out before we could even get out there. I was a little concerned about Katie and Karyie at first, but it turns out they came out on the other side of the church because their classroom doors are on that side. We all prayed out front with the pastor before heading out to an early lunch. It was definitely a unique 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".
