I am going to make another "about me" post.

My husband and I have been together since JR. High. married when we were 25. Tried for 3 years to get pregnant, decided to try International adoption. I had went from one roller coaster to another and was burnt out. Some family members thought we should do foster care and I would get prego which drove me even crazier. Our first placements were our girls at ages 2 and 3 1/2. They melted our hearts. After all the crazy days when I thought I would never be a Mom and here they were. People say you guys did a wonderful thing taking them in and giving them a home. I thought I was the only one that thought that sounded crazy, because I seen it as they saved me. They were the answer to my prayers. Then we got a call for a little boy 15 months. So now we are a family.

My real name is Jeanelle but my knick name is Nelly. I have had that name since I was little. I am the youngest of 5 and a "late child" Not unplanned but late. I'm the one in the blue.
