Who Says Eight Is Enough and enjoyed looking at the photos of her family. It reminded me of the many blessings in our own. We have raised 7 children to adulthood and three in-laws have enriched our family. We now have oodles of grandchildren that bring us great joy. We have 2 birth and 5 adopted children, making our family multiracial and international. As in all families, sadness has touched us more than once. Our 3rd son died of congestive heart failure when a virus attacked his heart. He was only 25. Our 4th son was adopted at age 7, diagnosed as a child without a conscious at age 13 and as a sociopath at 18. Due to his violent behavior he is "estranged" from the family. The rest of our children are doing well and raising their own children to know Jesus as their Savior~ they are good, loving, faith-filled people...what more could I ask for??!!??
This Thankful Thursday I am praising God for the many family blessings in my life. For each and every one of our children, in-laws, and grandchildren and what they have taught us about living a life of faith.
