I am a pro-life Catholic homeschooling mother of 11 kids. We live in Canada. I enjoy travelling and have been to 20 countries so far: USA,(Hawaii,California,Chicago,NY,NJ,Washington),Mexico,Russia,Finland,England, Ireland,Scotland,France,Holland,Belgium,Norway,Italy,Spain,Portugal,Gibraltar,Malta,
Tunisia,Morocco,Germany,and the Vatican,and this Sept.(2008) I am also going to Egypt,Israel,Greece,Turkey,and Croatia,and a trip already booked for Oct. 2009 to Caribbean; Bahamas,Turks and Caicos, St.Maarten, St. Thomas,and a couple of other islands. We are hopefully planning on going to Asia in 2010(yes, we plan ahead!) to China,Japan,Taiwan,Singapore,Thailand,Hong Kong,and Vietnam…..sometimes the kids have traveled with us, other times, it’s just us! 🙂
My husband is in computers, and the kids(6 girls and 5 boys) range in ages from 1 year to 19 years.The oldest is going off to university in the fall.We are a traditional, orthodox religious family.We don’t believe in contraception or abortion. We homeschool the kids and they are also active in youth groups, Cubs and Scouts, piano lessons and air cadets.That’s us!!
I also have Social Phobia, depression, Asperger’s Syndrome, Marfan Syndrome, OCD,breathing problem, perception problem,and possible Bi-Polar Disorder. Needless to say, these limits make my life very difficult and challenging and each day is a struggle just to survive. It sets me apart from other people and I have been ostracized and bullied my entire life as a result. I also have endured countless severe traumas,misfortunes,and bad luck, which have broken me beyond repair.Yet, despite all these limitations I have a strong faith and love of God, which gets me thru.
