About the Raisers and the Crazies

I am a busy mother of four beautiful, amazing and absolutely crazy little humans.  Abigail graced us with her presence in 2010 and forever changed our lives for the better and was joined shortly (in just less than two years) by her twin brothers Benjamin and Christopher teaching us that God has a very interested sense of humor.  Well played God, well-played.  After that, we thought surely we were done when God called us to foster care and after wrestling with that for years, we welcomed an adorable 8 week old baby into our home in early 2017 who is now our son, Daniel Benton, through adoption.

Abigail is smart, sweet and a little sassy.  The sass comes from me.  Benjamin is a busy handful.  I often joke they he will make me old while I’m still young and then keep me young when I’m old.  Christopher is a sweet, sensitive soul.  He is quick to cuddle and also quick to cry.  Benton is a hurricane wrapped in a giggle.

Thankfully God blessed me with this amazing man to raise these crazies with.   Andrew has morphed from a hot and sweet boyfriend, into a caring husband and now into this amazing super dad who tucks in, reads stories with difference voices and takes our cute curly-haired girl to figure skating, our baseball boy to practice and does martial arts with another.  He is also a toddler whisperer when it comes to nap time.  Pretty much he’s a dreamboat.

In my “free time”, (insert audible laughter here), I enjoy running, writing about my family, speaking about motherhood, foster care and child advocacy.  I love meeting new people, finding out what they are passionate about and listening to them talk about it over chocolate cake, if we are being specific.  I believe that there is good in everyone and often we don’t remind each other of the good we see often enough.
