Our Family

This is us. 

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.

Anthony

Mirabel

Risa

Then, in September 2011, a tiny baby girl joined us.

Magdalene (Maggie)

And, two days before Christmas, in December 2011, another baby boy was placed into our arms.

Titus

Yep, that is speed parenting, 5 kids in 6 months!!!
Check out our family blog at 5Kids6Months for more ;)

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. 

Samuel (Sam)

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!

Brittney

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!

  2. Hello beautiful family! I saw a documentary about you on French TV, and what you are doing is amazing. I'm not religious but seeing what God gives you the strength to do makes me want to start discovering religion too. I wish you lots of happiness and all the best to the children for their future endeavors. Greetings from Europe!
