|Shannon, Brian and our menagerie of kiddos!|
When we gave our hearts to the Lord He gave us His heart for the orphan.
In June 2011, as brand new foster parents we welcomed a sibling group of three to our family.
Then, in September 2011, a tiny baby girl joined us.
And, two days before Christmas, in December 2011, another baby boy was placed into our arms.
Yep, that is speed parenting, 5 kids in 6 months!!!

We felt God stirring our hearts again to adopt so in February 2014 we drove across the U.S. to welcome home a little boy who was being re-homed by his previous adoptive family.
After receiving a call about a special needs girl who had been in foster care for 8 years we just couldn't say no! She joined our family in June 2015 and has taught us so much about pure joy!
And now we are farmers!
And on a journey...
To continue to grow compassion, responsibility and sacrificial love in our children...
To share the joy our animals give us with others...
And to humanely feed, love, grow and raise farm-fresh produce, milk, eggs and meat for the nourishment of our bodies!
