I was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands. We immigrated to the USA when I was 8 years old to Glenside, Pennsylvania. When I was a freshman in High School we moved to Florida and I have been here ever since. I met my husband in college and we were married in December of 1971. We have 8 wonderful children. Due to medical problems we could not conceive so all of our children are adopted. They are all different and have enhanced our family with their unique gifts. We now have 13 grandchildren some of them are adopted. Our family and our church are first in our life. I am a teacher in a Catholic School where our children attended and now some of our grandchildren attend. That is much more fun then when it was my own kids in the school where mom works!
Life is great and I thank God daily for all of the blessings He has bestowed upon us. Another time I will describe my wonderful adult children.
