An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Saturday, September 29, 2012
Inexpensive date, priceless beauty. I love exploring Colorado's nature trails with Daniel. With the kids it's fun and interesting, but with Daniel is just beautiful and peaceful. It was one of those rare Fall days where the weather is perfect and even the sky looks like it was painted to provide a perfect back drop for photos. What I find even more amazing, though, is that nature and time are leaving their mark on my Sweetie, Daniel, and yet I find him more beautiful every year.
I love each one of his smile lines and those little worry lines he gets on his forehead. I think his hair color suits him more now that it has darkened as he's gotten older. And on a day like this, his blue eyes are more lovely than the sky.
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".
