DH: Zeke Everett
DW: Jennifer Corinne
We got married in the summer of 1995, partly because I was expecting. Unfortunately, 1 month after the wedding, I miscarried. We were both unemployed back then and were living off Zeke's family money (he had a little money). When I lost that child, I decided to get a grip on myself and go find a job.
Year 1, 1996: That year I found a job as a customer service representative in a bank. It worked out all right for me...
Year 2, 1997: I was so worried I would miscarry again I kept postponing having another child. We decided to adopt a puppy. We named him Equinox. It was the most beautiful Samoyed puppy, all white and fluffly!
Year 3, 1998: Equi soon started to take more room in our lives. That is when we realized we needed to have a baby. We wanted lots. And boys especially! I was not ready to get pregnant yet and expect and be disappointed like last time. So we decided to adopt twin boys in Russia. We knew about the situation over there and we wanted to help baby boys in need. We got Wendell Iosif and Sean Mikhail. We decided to give them American first names and Russian middle names.
Year 4, 1999: With Wen & Sean with us, we could not afford Zeke's not working. He applied in McDonald's and got a job there! Yay!
Year 5, 2000: We learned that it was very easy to adopt children in Australia so we decided to adopt another boy there. We loved Wen & Sean so much we wanted more! So we adopted Lucas Ethan.
Year 6, 2001: With three boys at home, we could not afford our low-paying jobs any longer. We decided to open a restaurant/coffee place we called Forkista Coffee.
Year 7, 2002: The restaurant was doing great and the boys were growing well. That's when I found out I was expecting. I was frightened and happy at the same time. We hoped it would be a boy. It wasn't a boy, but TWO. We called them Nelson Ethan (same middle name as Luke) & Rick Abraham.
Year 8, 2003: Exhilarated by this experience, I was expecting again in a few months. We had another boy we called: Denis Gerard.
Year 9, 2004: We loved our boys and they were great with us. We decided to adopt other twin boys in Russia, just like we did with Wen & Sean. We called them Davis Andrey & Matthew Daniil.
Year 10, 2005: I got pregnant again but this tim we had a baby girl! We called her Alexia Darlene.
Year 11, 2006: With our 9 kids and our dog, we decided that it was time to sell the restaurant. It was too much for us. We bought another firm of Product Evaluation Services. It worked well as well but we had way more time for ourselves and the kids.
Year 12, 2007: We decided to adopt another boy, our tenth, but this time in China. We called him Chris Jié.
Year 13, 2008: I got pregnant again! We had a baby boy we called Nicholas Fredrick.
Year 14, 2009: AGAIN! This time would be the last... Cheaper by the dozen, they say. A dozen would be enough We got our second baby girl that we called Rosemarie Claudia.
Year 15, 2010: We started thinking about ourselves and we bought the car of our dreams with the money we earned with our firm: a brand new Toyota Corolla! That year, Equinox died. All the kids were very sad... :'(
