It's official. We are now parents to an additional child. May I present to you for the first time ms Hollie May-Hope Davis.

She's been with us for 3 years now but we were finally able to have the adoption finalized with the courts via zoom this morning.

Thanks guys. We now officially have 5 children and one foster child who will be with us long term.

People ask how we manage with 6 kids. I just respond "It's another plate at the table". Really though. That's how we look at it. When you're buying and cooking for multiples, it's just one more plate. It's one more pair of shoes. One more change of clothes. Etc. Laundry is a never-ending task. But each person has their own basket. Each person is responsible for washing their drying and folding their own clothes. Each person is responsible for washing their own bedding etc. You get a good consistent routine going and it's not that difficult.

Yesterday a package arrived in the mail from the agency she was with outlining her entire family history based on what the agency could come up with.

It's sad to see all the bouncing around from place to place and other crap that they went through since they were born.

Without getting into details dad was in and out of their lives as they had and on/off relationship.(mom and dad) Mom was battling with depression and suicidal ideations which caused her to not provide proper care to the girls. When they came into care, they had been with their aunt and uncle for 4 years after the mother basically gave up and left them behind.

Along with her entire history, there was information on her other family members and their medical history just in case something ever happens to her where she becomes ill.
