For those of you that know me...you know that I have a pretty special family. I am one of 17 children. Yes, 17! Crazy, I know.
No, my mom didn't actually give birth to 17 children. We aren't like the Dugger family that way...and my mom's haircut is way better than Mrs. Duggar's too =)
5 of us are biological and 12 are adopted. 1 from Mexico, and 11 from Russia and Ukraine. Ages range from 29 to 6. No, I am not the 29 year old, I am still only 27 =)
Tomorrow morning my Dad, Mom, and youngest biological brother, Ben, 16, are flying to Ukraine to adopt more children. Ben is fluent in Russian and will be a big help with translating. Please pray for travel safety, smoothness of all the intricacies involved in the adoption process, safety and unity for the ones staying behind,peace in the hearts of the new children leaving behind all they have ever known, and that above all...the Lord be glorified!
I'll be keeping you updated. Thank You!
Jesus follower. After that I'm happily married, mom to four, homeschooler, traveler, photographer, and never one to turn down a good cup of coffee.
