My husband and I have nine beautiful children. Nine wonders, nine gifts from Life. A beautiful rainbow family. A wonderful mix of children born from the body, the soul and from the heart. We were blessed to experience childbirth 5 times, and then came the miracle of international adoption from Vietnam. Some of us just took different paths. Is nine children a lot? Do we consider ourselves a large family? No. One more child is just one more potato in the pot!
