Hi! I’m Adéye. It is so wonderful to meet you here. I’m an incredibly blessed daughter of the King of kings, wife to the most amazing man in the world for 24 years and mom to ten beautiful children–three amazing biological sons, three precious daughters from China, two beautiful daughters from Ukraine, and two sweet blessings adopted from Bulgaria. We’re crazy about Jesus, learning daily about surrendering our lives, passionate about adoption, and living every day by His amazing grace with special needs and medically fragile children. My days are filled to overflowing with caring for my family and running our hobby farm in Colorado. On these pages I share my passions, my heart, my victories, my struggles, and my daily life. I am so grateful that you have chosen to journey with my family. This is my unfolding story.
