Smile HI.

I have two bio children, a girl and a boy, and two teen girls that we adopted from foster care. They are bio sisters to each other. The oldest is Deaf, and our family uses American Sign Language. (in a nutshell! )

I'm excited to find support, share stories/journeys, and get to know many of you better. xo
