It is already time for our first post-adoption report! That's hard to believe! On one hand it seems like it was just last week we were still in Vietnam, but on the other hand it feels like Ephraim has been a part of our family for a very long time. As part of our post-adoption report we have to provide three copies each of five different pictures. Four of the pictures were no problem because we've already amassed hundreds. The problem was the required picture of Ben, Ephraim and me all in the same shot. I'm always the photographer, so we're never all three in the same shot! After church this afternoon we got Bailey to take some pictures while we were still in our "Sunday-go-to-meeting" clothes. I think they turned out pretty good. Since everyone complains that I'm the invisible blogger, here's some pictures of me. I really do exist!
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
