An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Thursday, October 11, 2012
I hope there is never a day my kids completely outgrow playing at the park. It seems like such an essential part of our lives. Searching for new parks, family walks to nearby favorite parks, finding the best place for taking pictures. I hear so many little voices yelling, "Mommy, take my picture!" and "Look what I can do!" The funny part is that even my older kids like Danya still want me to take pictures of them. The only change is that now it's about looking cool in the photo or showing off an even greater feat of strength or dexterity on the playground equipment.
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".
