An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Saturday, December 19, 2015
We rapidly prepared for Christmas this year, and found out in the process that a lot of our decorations were missing or worn out and broken. We finally bought new stockings and decorated the tree with the only string of lights we had left. Next year maybe we can restock on lights. I kind of missed hanging lights from the balcony and on top of the cabinets. Ryker was fascinated by all of it. The kids had fun trying on some of the silly head gear at Walmart. Jordan pointed out that it was unfair for "elf ears" to only come in white skin tone. But she still looked adorable.
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".
