My So Called Life

Well I've been reading (stalking) blogs for a long time, and I finally decided I should write about my infinitely interesting life! Haha! So here's my first post.

I am a middle age working mom with three daughters, Bailey (25), Avery (21) and Madison (17) and my wonderful husband, Gary (who turns the big 50 in August!). Avery just got married on July 8, 2009 to Kendall and so I am now a mother-in-law. I couldn't ask for a better son-in-law, we love him! Gary & I decided to answer a calling for foster parents about a year ago and have been blessed to care for 2 infants. We had a baby boy, Baby A, last fall for three months. We got a 9 day old baby girl in January, Baby M. And yes it tears my heart out when I have to give them up, but it's not about me, it's much, much bigger. God has a plan for us and for these babies and I am just helping out in a way that I am able to. Baby M is now 7 months old and is into everything! I will blog about her, but unfortunately cannot post her beautiful face since she is a foster child.

Anyway, enough about me and I'll put something more interesting up next time!!
Here's our family and Kendall's family on the happy day!
