Here I go

Okay, everyone around me seems to have started a blog, so I figured I should do one too. What's there to say but introduce myself. My name is Jerilyn and as you can see, I am a Wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. I have been married for 14 years to the love of my life and we have three beautiful children. We adopted our oldest son, Cade, age 5, from our state's foster care system. This past March we were called about a set of boy/girl twins that were eligible for adoption. Trace amd Sierra are now 9 months old and we anticipate on completing their adoption by April of this year. I would never have dreamed that my life would go in the direction that it has, but God knew what we could handle.

I am the oldest of 4 children. I have two sister and a brother who is 13 yrs younger than me! My parents have been fortunate to be married for 34 years and counting. I am extremely close to my family. It seems there isn't a weekend that I'm not off doing something with one of my sisters or my favorite sister-in-law (I can say that cause the other two will probably never see this blog and my SIL and I might as well be sisters!)

I have a huge group of online friends that I would love to meet in person one day. They have been an invaluable source of information and support during this past year and I love each of them to death! (SNA gals!)

I manage to stay in touch with a few of my school friends. My very best friend and I can go weeks without talking to each other and then meet up for lunch and we can pick up right where we left off! We are there to support each other during times of need and celebrations and I know I can call on her for anything!

I've been working in an office of a 1800+ family catholic church for the last 10 years, and I can tell you they have been 10 very interesting years of working with my boss (the resident priest). I'm sure I'll come here to tell some interesting stories that many of you may find hilarious to say the least.

Well, that seems to sum up my life! I can't wait to come here to post my thoughts!
