It was definitely my parents calling and though there were mistakes made (of course) I just think they are earthly angels. It's a great example to show your children and I think all of us, bio kids, knew how blessed we were by living with kids who were not so blessed and seeing firsthand what that looked like. It was an interesting childhood, most definitely and mostly great, with ups and downs!

Anyway, my mom was super organized with so many kids in the house! Chore charts were a must. Good luck to you and God bless you!
I wish they allowed that here, we can have no more than 6 including bio children
