One of the most rewarding things I've ever done

Two and half years ago Donald and I were volunteered by my daughter to babysit for her friend Tashsa. Now you might think... rewarding? babysitting? are you nuts? But I want to share some photos and our story of growing our family. 

Over that two and half years these children, all FIVE of them, we kept that first night have become family as has their mama, she's just another one of my adopted kids.  

There is Laston who just turned 3, the twins James and Jonah who just turned 5 last week, Braylee who will be 6 next month and and Makayla who turned 11 on Wednesday earlier this week.

And because I want you to see the sweet video I'm going to link you to my Facebook page to check out their photos.

The reward has been 100% more than the work it takes to babysit or attend events for these little ones.  We've been invited and gone to grandparents day at school, we've been to ball games, we've had dinner dates and movie nights with these children. And if you've never seen a 2 year old mesmerized by a movie try the Jungle Book.  Donald calls James "man cub" ever since we took them to see that movie.

If your life isn't too full to add some joy... I strongly suggest you find a family who might need "adopting". I can almost guarantee there is a neighbor or a family in your church or community who really needs you and I promise the rewards will make your life richer. I can't imagine my life without these 5 little monkeys that call me Grammy and call Donald Papa Don.
