I'm a forty-something mother of 6 and the wife of Mike, living in the mountains of Virginia. We've been married since 1987, after a short romance of 5 months. My first love is my Lord and Savior, Jesus. I love my husband dearly, and am thrilled to be blessed with motherhood. We have 3 biological children and 3 adopted daughters from China.
I grew up the second of 4 children. The first 10 years of my life was spent in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. After that, we moved to my parents' home place in West Virginia. I love the simpleness of life there and had a wonderful childhood. My father has passed away, but my mother still lives in the house we moved into when I was in high-school. I moved from home when I graduated high-school and met my Navy husband a couple of years later.
A few years later, we started a family with our first child, Jordan. Once Seth was born a few years later, I became a stay-at-home mom. Although home-life is sometimes hectic, there is nothing I love more than having all my children gathered in the kitchen for some loud conversations.
