Adoption Day!!!!!

More soon, but I can finally show you pictures of my whole family. We celebrated the adoption of Deniece, Rimonah, Judah, Malkiah and Hezekiah yesterday, to our incredible joy! I have professional pictures coming, and will do good ones of each individual child, but here’s the best one of the whole family so far. Thanks to my mother, who bought the color-coordinated purple clothes for all 10 kids months ahead – when we still didn’t know when there would be an adoption.


From left – Eli (16 in a few days), Me (43), Rimonah (6), Deniece (13), Malkiah (4), Eric (45), Kai (3), Judah (6), Isaiah (12), Asher (10), Zion (3 1/2), Simon (14)

    Of course you all wore purple for St Urho’s Day!

    Seriously though, it is heart warming to see you all together after all this time. Keep up the great work as a family 🙂

    I’m guessing you aren’t all Raven’s fans (or Vikings fans either). Congratulations on a fine looking family.

    Congratulations for the colour co-ordination ;-)! I have enjoyed your articles for quite awhile but first became acquainted with you via some comments made by Pat Meadows on Only Heirlooms @ Thank you for your nice photo (and the writings you’ve done the past few years).
