Roger K. just forwarded this Times article of wonderful Christian witness titled "God called them to adopt. And adopt. And adopt." Praise God for Misty and Don!
In a few short years, the family of six had expanded to 10 — including three children with medical or psychological issues. It has helped that Misty has a high tolerance for — even thrives on — the “controlled chaos” of her big-family life. She also has unflagging energy and often manages on four hours’ sleep. On the day we first met, I momentarily mistook her for the kids’ babysitter, in her flip-flops and pink toenail polish, a tiny faux diamond stud in her nose that matches her daughter Lauren’s.
Jon is an involved father who spends hours with the kids, coaching his oldest son’s wrestling team, dirt-biking with his teenagers and skateboarding with the younger ones.
