More than one at a time…

Way back in the mists of time. When we didn’t have kids and we thought we were busy, my wife worked as a teacher at a private school on the East side. She and the PE teacher there hit it off (Their sense of humor and justice in a grade school meshed perfectly). At the time none of us had kids, but wanted them. We were finally blessed with a little gem of our own they pursued a different vein.

I have an unspeakable amount of respect and awe for people who take others into their homes. Be it, family’s in need, foster children or full blown adoption. It is something my wife and I have talked about again and again. We might some day, but it would need to be a really obvious open door. Her friend and husband had no such qualms.

They adopted two girls from Haiti, going through an unbelievably difficult story and practically living in Haiti during the final months of the process (do I really remember that right?).  Not put off one bit, they have since adopted an older girl and have (since we saw them last) started the process of adopting three boys.  We would worry about them but I get the feeling that it is them who should be worrying about us and our two little whirlwinds.  Shortly after adopting the first two (and I think when they were adopting the third) they moved to Spain.  Yep, you read it right.  And they loved it.  Blogged about it here.

We were able to meet up with them at the Cheesecake Factory and let our kids do the whole “hair, teeth and eyeballs” think outside after we finished.  I grabbed a few quick shots and got the OK to post them.  Also, you should hit their new Blog home on WordPress (yea!) it’s Here.
