Let’s Say That…..
You have four or more children and most of your family and friends think you are crazy. Maybe you home school your kids and worry that your lack of teaching skills will end up ruining their lives. You may have adopted children who are from a different culture than yourself and you need information and support from someone like you who understands. Perhaps you are a stay at home dad and need something to read during the kiddo’s nap time. It could be that your family is outgrowing your budget. Or, it might be you are thinking about adding to your family, through adoption or other ways, and just need a little insight as to how crazy you might be. If anything you just read describes you, you have come to the right place, because for that last six years, all of the above categories have described me.
Hi, I’m Brian. Big family patriarch, home school teacher and adoptive parent. Welcome to the blog that’s about….. us…… me and you. Yep, I have learned a lot about adoption, trans-racial families, homeschooling and large families over the past six years. I’m eager to share my experiences and lessons learned. Here you will find encouragement, tips and tricks, and perhaps a few “been there, don’t do that” warnings. I promise that I will do my best to provide you with reading that will be entertaining, interesting, educational and sometimes even funny. Families like mine and yours are awesome, they are fun, always entertaining and yes, sometimes challenging. So join me, and lets walk through this crazy thing called life together.
