The Gorman Family Circus. That is what my nephew affectionately calls our family. We are a family of 7 at the moment (that can and does change from time to time). We have been brought together through marriage, childbirth, adoption and foster care. Currently (and Forever) there is myself, Marti, my husband of 18 years-Jeff, and our children Olivia, Grace and Andrew. We are also blessed to be a family to our two foster sons, who we love dearly. We have been foster parents for 7 years and have been blessed to adopt one of children. We love our children dearly and hope to soon be blessed again through adoption.

December 20, and Christmas is 5, yes thats 5 days away. Am I ready, no. We have been so busy with programs, work, sports etc. And God must have a sense of humor because we get to combine Christmas with the begining of transitioning our 2 1/2 yr old little guy, who has been with us through foster care since he was 7 months old, back to his Mom. And our other little foster babe, who is 8 months old is begining his journey towards permenancy. After trying for four years to adopt again, I think I have about all but given up.
