Welcome to the Carter blog. There once were 5 of us, then we grew to 11, then 14 for a short period and now are about to be 12. Some may say we are actually ONE EGG SHORT OF A DOZEN for choosing to have a large family. We hurt and cry and sometimes yell but then again we laugh, forgive, and have fun much more! We call ourselves FAMILY. Join us on the adventures we seem to fall into on our adoption journeys and family life. You never know what you will find!

You pray the power to come on so you can wash a load of laundry so you won’t have to go the tribal look. 6. You rejoice if the power stays on a full 24 hours 7. Your new weight loss program includes a ride up the mountain (bouncing all over the place), sweating all day, walking to and from church, and a liter bottle of water. 8. A trip to the grocery store is exciting 9. You dream about Pizza and McDonalds (Kids I will gladly go with you when I get home) 10. The big bugs don’t bother you anymore and instead they intrigue you. 11. When you and your friend sit on edge listening to each other’s life history for replacement of reality TV. 12.
