    Hey everyone, it's me....I had my previous thread deleted (thanks, mods!) and now I'm starting a new one now that I've calmed down a bit. I know I'm gonna be venting and needing advice etc. from my chicken buddies, so that's the purpose of this thread. Anyone who has a comment or some words of wisdom please post, I appreciate everyone here and the support they've been giving us through all this. Just a little history:

    My sister in law died on Feb 19th, leaving behind a grieving family and three children. My husband (Charlie) and I are taking custody of the two oldest, a 6yr old boy (Wesley) and an 8yr old girl (Jordyn), along with our own son, who is two days younger than Wesley. The baby is with his biological father. We are currently in the process of adjusting to having the kids with us, and right now we're getting their rooms put together.

    She was a wonderful person, and although her last act was so final we still love her and miss her.


    Anyways, I'm gonna get a few pics posted here. Thanks everyone, and God Bless!!!

    I love the pink [​IMG] My favorite color. Those kids are going to be wonderful people later in life because of your selfless gift of raising them. Did you get the recipe I sent you?

    Yes I did, thanks for that....I've gotten so many PM's I can't keep track of them all....it sounds yummy, as well as quick and easy, which is very important for me right now LOL!!! I'm scanning a pic of my SIL to post here. Jordyn looks so much like her it's scary....she was so beautiful even though she was overweight. She always had the best looking guys after her....

    I can guarantee those kids will LOVE those pizza cups. I make 12 at a time, for 5 of us and they are always gone.
     
  8. Those children are Beautiful... Wasn't there a third child? A toddler? Perhaps you said something about him/her and I missed it, I don't know.... One of the children is your own right?


    Please PM me with their sizes of clothing, I'll go through my kids outgrown things and see if I can come up with anything. I can swing the shipping, that's not a problem.

    *Oy Debi, what is this about Pizza Cups? My ears just perked up! lol
