Ephraim was nineteen months old on Friday. He joined our family at nine and a half months old, so that means he's now been a part of our family longer than he lived in Vietnam. I just can't believe Ephraim has been here for that long! It seems like the seven months we waited to travel after referral lasted forever, but it was just yesterday when we got back from Vietnam. Then again ... it feels like Ephraim has been a part of our family for a very long time. We are so lucky! God has blessed us with one very special little boy.
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.
