Sarah age11 joined our family in 2001. We were truly led by God to China, and at age 57 adopted her!! she is a delight!!!
Infomation about grandchildren:
We have eight from 21 down to 5. You don't really want me to get started here!!!
Working? With a 41 yr old? yes! But after 19 years at Worthington Christian School, 12 as the Elementarty Librarian, I am at home now. Steve is retired from GE.
I consider my career to be as a wife and mother, the rest was fun and paid some bills!
We traveled to Bejing, Guilin, Yangshuo ending in Guangzhou and Shenzhen and Hobg Kong. We did this to share Sarah's culture with her as she was only 4.5 when she left. We had a terrific time.
Interests, hobbies, and pastimes:
Our life still revolves around Church and family.
A new chapter began 5 years ago when we moved to Jacksonville Florida.
Staying married to the same man for 46 years, and he to me; the harder part by far!!!
Raising, or mostly raising, our family.
Favorite memory of MHS:
MYF and band, I am still teary when a band marches by in a parade, or on the football field. Mr. Stark, loved him.
Now my daughter is starting flute and doing very well!!
