I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

I always wanted a big brother. I love my two sisters very much but there was something about a big brother that I longed for.
When I was twenty-one my first brother came from Africa. He was three years old and was ring bearer at our wedding four months later.
Then the second came when I was pregnant with our second daughter. He was six.

They are now seventeen and sixteen and heading into their senior year in high school.

I love them as if they have been there my whole life.

I love them as if we share blood.

And I make them smile when I call them my "big" little brothers. I really love that.
