About me

Location United States
Introduction Welcome Readers! This blog began as a record of our trip to Ukraine where we adopted two boys in 2010. Since the blogging was getting a little boring over time, we added two girls from China in 2013. To answer the obvious questions; Yes, we have nine kids (eight still at home). Yes, we’d adopt more kids if we could afford it. Yes, our house is a wreck. For the record, our girls do not take ballet, our boys are mediocre at soccer, and none of our children are in the gifted program at school. Nevertheless, God loves us and sent His son to die for our sins! The blog title is from a poem by W.H. Auden (Finding Atlantis). As soon as I heard the phrase, I thought it perfectly described our schlepp through life. When things fall apart, we remember that we give from a ridiculous spiritual/emotional abundance because we drink from streams of living water that never run dry.
Favorite Movies All the other info they are asking for (favorite movies, books, music etc.) is available if you would like to know more but really, we're not that interesting.
