about us

My name is Patti, and I've been married to my best friend, Sam, for 27 years this May.

We have eleven beautiful children: Jason (pictured with his wife, Naomi, and their children Koa and Norah) and Josiah (pictured with his wife, Monique), Mackenzie, Tyler, Jonathan, Caleb, Abigail, Noah, Jackson, Lily Anne, and Hayden. We also have four precious babies waiting for us in Heaven.

My husband is a pastor and runs his own business, and I stay at home with our children, homeschooling, and pretending to clean the house. As well as being a wife and mom, I enjoy scrapbooking, playing piano for our church, blogging about orphans with Down syndrome, and helping to find their forever families. We are doing our best to raise our children to love God with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strength ... as a family we hope to share the love of Jesus with as many people as possible.

This blog was started during the pregnancy of our tenth child, Lily Anne. Her birth, diagnosis, and life has already made a profound impact on our family and the lives of those around us....

...it's our hope it will do the same for you.
