I was just talking to my friend Mary, who is also adopting again, about becoming a family of 9. Then I realized how are we all going to eat at the same time. Here is a picture of our kitchen table the first day we brought the boys home, now a family of 7.
Now, Jacob is in his special chair so we don't have to worry about him. However, Faith is no longer in a high chair and we are adding two more people to the family. The problem . . . that eat-in-kitchen area is not magically going to get any bigger just because we added two more children. I guess the old days of eating around the table together is gone. We will have to put two at the kitchen bar and mommy and daddy will just have to stand while they eat. The sad thing is that table actually expands to seat eight, we just don't have room to expand it! I am so thankful that God continues to grow our family in spite of the size of our table.
