|Location||anyone lived in a pretty how town, Illinois, United States|
|Introduction||30. Married to an amazing firefighter/paramedic and mommy of four of the most beautiful children in the world. Bear was born via c-section in May 2006, and Beauty was born in Guatemala in March 2007 (and "set foot" on American soil exactly nine months later in December 2007). Our newest addition, Sunshine, is being fostered for six months before we can move to adopt her. She has quite a few special needs (more on my blog). Our sweet youngest, Little Flower, was born in October 2009. She came to our family through the blessing of open adoption. We are now complete. This is our story. Love will lead.|
