Today is the two year anniversary of our youngest son, Marquell’s, b-father, Dion, passing away; I really liked Dion.  We had heard from the agency what a wonderful son we were adopting but that he showed a few behavior problems when it came to his b-father.  In other words, he lied to see his dad.  […]

Mom sleeps most of the time, so she didn’t know when Tandra arrived.  What I find amazing with grandchildren is that they enjoy what I consider to be annoying work.  We hired a man to tar our driveway, and two of our dogs got outside by accident.  Our mini-dachshund, Oscar, flopped over on his back […]

No one likes to be ignored and trivialized especially those who feel that they have something to share that would make a difference.  If you have been traumatized because of adoption, you want to see changes.  There is an entire herd of us with similar experiences, why ignore us?  Not all of us have pretty […]

Last night was fun.  We went bowling as a family; there were nine of us that actually played the game and since we have children we use the bumpers.  The bumpers are great for those of us who bowl once a year.  You get points at least once per round.  The boys grumbled about it, […]

With excitement, I’m grateful to announce that Luida came to visit after all.  It has been wonderful to have her in our home.  She’s added another dimension of laughter and gaiety that left with all the idiosyncrasies of late.  All the kids are in the family room laughing and playing games until the early hours […]
