I am42 years old inside a much younger body. I have a 14 yr boy, a 10 yr boy a 12yr girl and have adopted a boy who is now 2.5 years old. I am a foster parent with the intentions of trying to adopt one more...a little girl. I am fortunate enough to be able to stay at home, and do what Ive wantedo do...raise kids. I love my life and that is why I feel so young. I was a great mom to the first set and Im a even better mom now with more paitence, and alittle more financial freedom. More and more people are having kids in their 40s and if you love it you should do it!!!!! Adoption is wonderful. Somedays people get me down, making me feel like I dont know what Im doing, why would I want to have another baby around, sleepless nights, pushing a stroller, unable to get out the house at times.....They ask dont you want to travel and start doing things for yourself...SLOW DOWN. I look at them and their lives, and think NO this is my life and the way I want to live it. My family is awesome and alot of fun.! I am going to foster newborns and adopt as many kids as God will allow. I only have one shot in live...Im living it my way!
