Our newest addition was my five year old neice Brooke (age 5) who's mother is... well having issues. But besides her I have a 4 year old daughter Kari, a 3 year old step-daughter Daylin, a 22 month old daughter Lillyan, and 7 month old twins Jami (girl) and Jeremy (boy).
My husband and I were not planning on the last pregnancy. But everything happens for a reason! right? And then to find out it was twins. I wanted to cry. I was so scared. Lillyan was still a baby her self and then to add two more! I didn't think I could do it. But they are 7 months old now and I still have most my hair.
As for Brooke, I couldn't sit around and watch her go through what she was going through. My husband and I talked about it and we figured, what's one more : ) She has severe ADHD, and we are starting to try her on appropriate meds now. She loves kindergarden, and loves living with us.
Well, most days I don't know if I'm coming or going; but I will say it is never boring at our house.
