I have been taking care of children since I was 5. I also have a heart for the elderly and those with special needs. I became a stepmom when my stepdaughter was 2. We have always had her half the time. Thanks be to God. Most dads only get every other weekend.
I didn't become a Christian until my stepdaughter was 4. Shortly there after my husband and I had our 1st daughter. She was by far the hardest baby I have had the pleasure of caring for. Being a full time mommy was new to me and very different. I thought I was a patient person before. Having Christ with me the whole way has truly helped me be the mom I am today. I owe it all to Jesus. Praying instead of getting angry. Teaching my children love, compassion and respect and leading by example is what it's all about.
