My Life

I never intended for this blog to be about my children.  I thought my blog would be about my life and my ponderings...aka...Lorene's Babble.  Cute isn't it.  Instead though as I read back over the last several years I realize that my life and my ponderings are my children.  They are one and the same.

I became a mom for the first time at the ripe old age of 15.  I turned 15 in July and had Robby in August.  Cue 2 years and I turned 17 in July and had Dennis in September.  Life happened and in between raising my boys and earning two college degrees I met and married and man of my dreams, my best friend Tim.  We miscarried our honeymoon baby "Peanut" and then proceeded to be blessed with two beautiful daughters, Sydnie was born when I was 26 and Bridgette when I was 28. 

If you have followed my blog you know that we are now blessed with four beautiful foster children.  We have six kids in the home ranging in age.  They are 11, 9, 8, 5, 2 and 10 months.  I can honestly say that I never planned my life to be a mother but it is something I love and I am damn good at it.  Mary Kay once said that if you love your work you'll never work another day in your life.  I do love my children and I will never say they aren't work but I can't imagine my life being any different then it is right now.

Thank you Tim for sticking by my side and continuing to raise "our" children.  Thank you Sydnie and Bridgette for making the family decision to begin foster care.  Thank you God for being by our side every step of the way.
