4 years later after many years of not so gentle nudging from me, we started the adoption journey! After about a year our beautiful 5th daughter was born! I'll save her story for another post, but let me just say that adoption is the best thing I have ever done! 4 years later we started the adoption process again and were matched fairly quickly with another beautiful little girl! 2 days before going to meet her, I miracoulsy discovered I was pregnant (10 years after a vasectomy)! To say we were in shock was an understatement! Sadly our social worker canceled our match and our dreams of adopting again were put on a very long hold. Daughter #6 joined our family and then right before her 1st birthday we were again shocked to discover that baby girl #7 would soon be joining us!
I never in million years thought I'd have 7 kids, let alone 7 daughters, but it's pretty amazing! People always ask me how I do it all, since I'm also a working Mom! My response is always the same! It doesn't matter if you have 1 kid or 10 it's all a challenge! You are responsible for another human and that is huge! I just prioritize! I try not to put pressure on myself to be perfect! Sometimes everything doesn't get done and that is ok! I know my girls are happy and healthy and as long as that is the case, who cares if the laundry isn't all done or the house is messy! Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about how we ended up with 7 girls and I hope you continue to visit my blog! XOXO
