17 Days to 30


In the span of roughly four years, my family adopted six little children ranging from 3 months old to 5 years old. The adoptions were all via the foster care system. They each have their own “back stories” but I pray the love they’ve received and the spiritual teachings will cover them.


My family often had a cousin/family friend living with us when we were younger. However, this jump was different and permanent. In total, there are now 5 girls and 4 boys (really 5 boys because my cousin was raised with us).


We used to and still refer to them collectively as “the babies”. I love each one of my brothers and sisters and am amazed at their growth.
