Taylor Monika WaltersGerald & Sue Te Paske William & Shirley WindleOkay, yes, these are my grandkids, not the children my husband and I adopted. But I wouldnt be their Grandma, would I, without adoption? When were wanting to adopt, we focus so much on getting that baby, that child, and what that will mean in our lives at that moment. But the truth is, adoption changes who we are for the rest of our lives. I wasnt thinking about being a Grandma to three rowdy kids back then, but my instincts were on target nonetheless. When we chose adoption, we chose a life. Yes, there have been tough times. But how can I even imagine a life now that didnt include these three rascals and their group hug? I am forever grateful.Christina and grandkids24BARKER ADOPTION FOUNDATION'
