    Barry Richard and Teresa Dene Kander, married on May 31, 2003. Barry was 28 and Teresa was 21. We honeymooned for a week in the Bahamas, after which we returned to our home in Phoenix, Arizona.

    2003: We adopted a dog and a cat. Our dog is a male Boston Terrier named Jack, and our cat is a female Siamese named Keiko.

    2004: We doubled our family size when our twin sons were born this year! We named them Jacob Chandler Kander and Benjamin Alexander Kander

    2005: This year, we packed up the pets and the boys and moved cross-country. Our new home is in Salem, Massachusetts.

    2006: Our family increased again this year when we adopted twin five year old boys from Ethiopia,Daniel Hakeem Kander and David Melaku Kander

    2007: This has been quite a year. Barry's mother, Adele, who lived in Boston, developed health issues which made it impossible for her to continue to live on her own. We decided to add a room onto our home and move her in with us. It has been an adjustment, but one that seems to be beneficial to all of us.

    2008: And our family has grown yet again. This year we adopted 6 yr old triplets--two girls and a boy--from Germany. Their names are Liesl Adeline Kander, Johanna Grace Kander and Hans Jesse Kander.

    2009: Sadly, this year Teresa's best friend, Dave Rigsby, passed away this year, leaving behind two young daughters. We have opened our home to 3 yr old Marisa Rose and 2 yr old Rebecca Anne and are in the process of adopting them, at which time their last names will become Rigsby-Kander.

    2010: We were finally able to realize a dream of ours this year by opening a bookstore, which we call Tomes and Treasures.

    2011: We have let the kids talk us into adding a parrot to our household this year. She is a beautiful blue and yellow Macaw, and her name is Aruba

    2012: We seem to have a penchant for multiples. This year we adopted triplet 1 yr. old boys, whose names are Robert Quinn Kander, Richard Isaiah Kander, and Raymond Geoffrey Kander

    2013: After losing Barry's mother last year, we decided it was time to make another brand new start. We sold the book store and our house in Salem, Massachusetts, and relocated to Amarillo, Texas this summer. Everyone seems to be enjoying the new location and settling in to a comfortable routine.

    2014: Enjoying life in Texas didn't last very long, unfortunately. Barry and Teresa separated in March of this year, and were apart for six months. The children were very unhappy, as were both of their parents. After much counseling and hard work on both our parts, we were able to reunite in time to enjoy the holidays as a family.

    2015: Nine months after reuniting, we were blessed with triplets...all boys! Their names are Hunter Matthias Kander, Harrison Todd Kander and Holden Maxwell Kander

    2016: This year, Barry's younger brother, Stuart Anderson Kander, who is 22 and just out of college, moves in with us when he starts his new job here in Amarillo. He stays for six months while getting on his feet, and then moves into his own apartment.

    2017: We have a baby girl this year..our first single birth. We named her Adrienne Elizabeth Kander.

    2018: Barry's brother Stuart got married this year to his college sweetheart, Cassandra Dawn Lennon. Barry was best man, Leisl, Johanna, Marisa and Rebecca were junior bridesmaids, and Jacob, Benjamin, Daniel and David were ushers. It was a beautiful ceremony, and a fun-filled day.

    2019: We've missed working together, so we decide to open a new bookstore/coffe shop here in Amarillo. We call it Literature and Latte, and it's already a huge success.

    2020: Falling back on our penchant for multiples, this year we adopted two beautiful Persian kittens, Lynx and Avalon

    2021: Cassandra decides to open a daycare center, and asks Teresa to go into business with her. They name it Kid Karnival

    2022: This year we adopted three more children...2 yr old triplets. Their names are Larissa Harley Kander, Lorelei Breanne Kander and Landon Thomas Kander

    Year 1: my grandma dies and leaves us her beach house in Brigantine, NJ. Since we both have just graduated college, we decided to live there as our permanent residence. For such a small island off the coast of Atlantic City, the house is quiet large. It has a foyer, kitchen, dining room, living room, rec room, and 5 bedrooms. It also has a pool and hot tub.

    Year 2: Even though we are still getting used to the new house, we decide to adopt boy/girl twins from the state. They are only 3 weeks old. Their parents both died in a house fire, but the mom had been able to get the babies out. We name them James Damian Rinaldi and Serena Helen Rinaldi.

    Year 3: When the twins turn 1, we are totally happy being a family of 4. We made no plans to have more children in the near future. But fate decides for us. We have boy/girl twins! Nathaniel "Nate" Zachary Rinaldi and Clara Rose Rinaldi join the family!

    Year 4: Damian and I decide to try for another baby, but I have a miscarriage. About 6 months after that, my best friend, Clarice, dies from bone marrow cancer. She was a single mom to son Elliot Ronald, who is 3. Without my knowledge, Clarice had made me the godmother and Elliot was left to our care.

    Year 5: Damian has been working at the city hall since we moved onto the island. They mayor is a 78 year old man who is extremely kind. He makes Damian a member on the city council! Also, he has left a note for once he dies for Damian to run for mayor! His death occurs 3 days before Christmas and then Damian wins the election!

    Year 6: With the kids getting older, they are all either in kindergarten or pre-k! I have been begging Damian to have another, and he finally agrees! We have twin girls, Livia Reece and Ariana Clarice!

    Year 7: A strong hurricane is barrelling towards our tiny island. Damian orders an evacuation of the island, so we go to stay with family in Pennsylvania. After staying for a week, we decide to make our way back onto the island. Despite major flooding on the streets and beaches, our home remains intact. We lost some belongings, but we had each other.

    Year 8: After spending a year rebuilding the island, I decide that Damian deserves a break. For his birthday, I surprise him with a family vacation to the Dominican Republic! We stay at a beautiful resort, the kids have a blast, and my wonderful husband got to finally relax.

    Year 9: This is the year the my babies, Livia and Ariana, go to pre-k! After moping around the house for a few months, I decided to open my own business! It's a bookstore and a coffee shop with free wifi that becomes an instant hit on the island!

    Year 10: As our 10 year anniversary approaches, I find out that I'm pregnant again! Miraculously, its twins again! This time, its a boy and a girl. Ronan Jeffrey and Camilla Esme happily make us a family of 11!

    Year 11: Damian grew up in Arizona, Phoenix to be exact. When his mother is diagnosed with a very treatable form of brain cancer, Damian is torn. He wishes with all of his heart that he could be with his family during that time, but he has duties here on the island. When the time for re-election comes along, Damian and I make the decision for him not to run again. Instead, we make the move to AZ to be with his family. But we also keep the house in Brigantine, even if we may not be there for a while.

    Year 12: Living in AZ is a huge change for our entire family. The kids had to start new schools, the weather is hot and incredibly humid. BUt the kids adapt pretty well! As a reward, we buy them a puppy! It's a golden retreiver girl pup the kids name Poppy!

    Year 13: After 2 years in AZ, our family has finally adjusted. But then fate decides to send us a curve ball. Camilla has always been smaller than Ronan, which is only natural. He's a boy, right? During the summer, Cami complains that her leg was hurting. I thought she was just tired, so she spent the rest of the day in bed. Days became weeks and she was in constant pain. We rush her to PCH (Phoenix Children's Hospital) and are floored when they say she has neuroblastoma, a cancer. She undergoes multiple surgeries and rounds of chemo. But her fighting spirit never leaves. She pulls through and is declared cancer free exactly 1 year after her diagnosis!

    Year 14: After her diagnosis, Cami got a lot of attention from around the country. One person stood out in particular. A director of a hit teen tv show asked is Cami and the whole family would like to guest star in an episode all about childhood cancer. We obviously accepted!

    Year 15: By this time, we have accepted that twins were kind of our "thing". So naturally, when we decided to adopt again, it would be twins. This time, we adopted 2 little girls form Russia. When we adopted them, they were 10 months old. We decided to name them Viktoria Jane and Natalia June.

    Year 16: When Damian and I decide to start a charity foundation, we asked the family what they would like it to be about. We got a bunch of answers (makeup, trucks, puppies, etc.), but Serena suggested a foundation to donate money to Saint Jude's, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and PCH as a thanks for all they have done for us, especially Cami. My heart melted and the whole family agreed. Cami felt a little self-conscious, but we talked her through it.

    Year 17: My little sister, Daria, is a but of a wild child. She was a total surprise, being born 11 years after my little brother and 14 years after me. Now, she's 24 and barely a college graduate. She comes to live with us when her boyfriend dumps her. The kids absolutely adore their wacky Auntie Daria and I have to admit she's great with them. For as much as we don't get along always, I'm thankful for her with my kids. She stays for 7 months, finds a new boyfriend, and moves to Alaska!

    Year 18: The boys have been itching for a "boy pet" (lizard, turtle, scorpion, or maybe a monkey). So, we surprise them on Christmas morning with.....a cat and an iguana! The cat is a boy named Giant and the iguana is a shim (we never found out what gender it was) that the boys named Lime. Poor Lime didn't like our house very much and the girls despised it. So, Lime went away to live at the local zoo, but Giant got to stay!

    Year 19: We've lived in Arizona for 8 years. Damian's mom is healthy and in remission, our own child got cancer and bounced back, we added to our family, and we have all changed! But the older kids miss Jersey so much. When Elliot, James, and Serena beg to move back for their senior years, we finally budge. Nattie and Vik could start pre-k there, and the other kids could see their old friends again. Goodbye humid, ever sunny AZ, hello Brigantine! But, our old 5 bedroom house made it a little cramped. We decided to add to the house, putting 4 more rooms onto the back while keeping the pool for the summer.

    Year 20: Damian and I spent our 20th anniversary night in the hospital, waiting for news on our closest family friends, the Hamiltons. Their car was run off the road by a drunk driver, killing the mom Amelie immediately. Her husband, Peter, and their three sons Jack, Caleb, and Seth were in critical condition. Peter passed away after 3 days of fighting. But all three boys make it through. Damian and I find out that Peter and Amelie had left their kids in our possession. As heart broken as we were, those three little boys were devastated. Jack is 11 and understood everything that happened. He took it the hardest, by far. Caleb is 8 and oh so innocent. We carefully explained to him that Mommy and Daddy went to Paradise to spend the rest of forever together. That satisfied him, but he still missed them which is totally okay. Seth was just a baby, 3 years old. How do you explain this kind of thing to someone so small. He played with the other kids just fine, but every once in a while he would scream and cry and ask where Mama and Daddy were. It totally broke my heart, but things began to get slightly easier. Our kids provided a great distraction for the boys and soon it was like they were always a part of our family.

    Sure, it's been a whirlwind of a 20 years. 14 kids, 4 kids that were left to us because of parents passing, 4 adopted kids, and 5 sets of twins, a mother-in-law with cancer, my daughter almost dying of cancer, 1 dog, 1 cat, and an iguana for a month! But I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world!
    just a name nerd with lots of plans.
    Childhood cancer has names too. Never forget Ronan, Talia, Ty, and all the other children suffering

    Year 1:
    Got married at 23 years old, at the church my mother and her mother were married in, in NZ. Had our honeymoon in Fiji. Moved into a house in Melbourne.

    Accidently pregnant!

    Floyd Jackson N.

    Year 2:
    December 2015 - Adopt a cat and a dog! German Shepherd called Baxter and Persian called Sleuth.

    Year 3:
    Decide to try for a baby again, end up with triplet girls!

    Willa Rose N.
    Audrey Blythe N.
    Jemima Lenore N.

    Year 4:
    Open a children's book store. Call it Bedtime Stories.

    Floyd starts preschool. Baby girls are terrible twos.
    Go on holidays to NZ to visit family.

    Pregnant unexpectedly! Twin boys!

    Reuben Leigh N.
    Heath Walter N.

    Life is stressful, husband accepts a job away from home to get away for a bit. Surprises us by moving home early as he misses his little tribe. Floyd is 6, the girls are 4 and started school, and the babies are doing what babies do best.

    Niece comes to stay for a year as she is finding trouble at home and needs a distraction.

    Pregnant... again? Twin boys!?

    Oscar Cole N.
    Linus George N.

    We get another German Shepherd and call her Bonnie.
    Floyd is now 9 and a little daredevil with his strawberry blonde hair that he lets grow wild and brown eyes. The girls are 7, Willa is crazy at heart with long blonde curls and hazel eyes, as is Audrey her identical twin, who loves to sing and dance, and Jemima is the quietest, sweetest little girl with light brown straight hair and brown eyes. The boys are double trouble, causing a ruckus at school, both with wavy brown hair, green eyes and dimples.

    We open another branch of Bedtime Stories.

    My best friend dies, so I take in her children, my god children.
    Viola Marie, 10, is the same age as Floyd, and her little sister Bethany Louise is the same age as the girls, 8. Both girls have big brown eyes and dark hair. We spend the year bonding and expanding on our house.

    Bonnie has puppies! We keep one of them for Floyd's 11th birthday and he calls him Buckley. Bethany and Jemima are best friends, and all the little girls adore Viola as she is the big sister they always dreamed about. Reuben and Heath are now 7, Reuben is crazy and energetic like his older brother, whereas Heath likes to think things through and is shy and creative. Both are however inseparable, completely identical, and very cheeky. My babies are growing up, 4 years old and little gentlemen. Oscar has dark hair and green eyes, and Linus has light hair and brown eyes.

    Someone leaves a baby on my doorstep! After contacting authorities I decide to keep her. We go through the paperwork and social workers and enjoy motherhood all over again. The girls are thrilled with a baby sister.

    Cecily June N.

    We open yet another branch of Bedtime Stories!
    Our brood is growing up. Floyd and Viola are 14, and are starting to mature. Floyd is riding BMX as a serious sport and Viola plays the piano. Her beautiful brown hair is so long. The girls are about to enter that giggly "boys" stage, and it's the toddler years all over with the constant squabbling regarding bathroom time, clothes, shoes etc. Willa spends a lot of time riding horses at her friends house, while Audrey is dancing and singing and acting after school. Jemima always has a nose in a book or a sketchpad, along with her best friend Bethany who is also very creative. Reuben and Heath are tall and skinny 9-year-olds, their wavy brown hair streaked blonde from spending so much time outside together.They are still very much rascals, and still have their dimples to prove it. Oscar and Linus are 6, and are still my mild-mannered little men. Oscar loves learning, and has almost memorized his timetables. Linus is mechanically-minded, loves taking things apart yet unfortunately hasn't figured out how to put them back together. Baby Cecily is a joy, with her big brown almond eyes, olive skin and shock of dark curls. Sleuth falls asleep one night and doesn't wake up.

    Pregnancy scare! Definitely no more babies please! Also, Floyd has hit puberty and has shot up in height. And dear old Baxter has drifted off in his sleep to the big dog park in the sky.

    Husband bumps into an old flame at a work convention and she starts texting him. Thankfully nothing happens physically, but damage has been done. Bags are packed, hearts are broken, tears are shed, and somehow we manage to fall back into each others arms and I begin the process of learning to trust again.

    My youngest sister comes to stay with us while she does a year long contract at the local racecourse. Willa is thrilled and spends every afternoon with her aunt at the stables. Floyd and Viola have one last year of high school and are looking forward to Uni. Floyd wants to study commerce (surprised?) and Viola will study teaching and music. Also, Floyd rides a motorbike to school. If life was crazy with 4 twelve-year-olds, try 4 fifteen-year-olds. They have taken over the house, and all 4 bathrooms are exclusively theirs each morning. Reuben and Heath spend a lot of time at the beach or the local pool (when they should be doing their homework) and have gotten the attention of a few young girls in the community, much to their distress. My little gentlemen are not so little any more. They are constantly up trees building tree houses or trying to build bunkers in the back yard. Their curiosity is boundless. And sweet Cecily has been prescribed glasses, which look adorable on her little four-year-old self. She loves playing nurse with her "babies".

    Floyd has flown the coup! He and Buckley the pup are living the good life in a bachelor pad on the other side of town with a couple of school mates. Viola is attending the same Uni. Willa has decided to become a vet, as she would dearly love to work with horses in the future. Audrey has already been accepted into a school of the arts in the next state. Jemima has begun working for a local photographer after school and is considering studying photography / arts at Uni, and Bethany would like to follow, studying sociology / arts at the same Uni. Reuben and Heath have recently started up surfing, and have no plans for the future just yet. Oscar and Linus have been enrolled in the Scouts, after Linus sustained a broken arm from one of their tree house endeavours. What a difference it's made! My baby Cecily (who will always be my baby) is loving "big girl school" and is having the time of her life making friends.

    Husband has gotten a job in England! Viola has moved in with her girlfriends from Uni, Willa is living with her Aunt further out towards the country while she studies at the campus out there, Audrey is in the big smoke studying dance and theatre, and Jemima and Beth are living it up dorm style at a Uni that their friends are also at. The boys are your regular beach bums, they live to surf. They are considering a trade (apprenticeship) instead of finishing school. They are yet to decide if they would like to move to England with us at the end of the year. Oscar received a Maths distinction at school and Linus managed to not blow anything up. Cecily is the most happy, outgoing, friendly little creature I've ever met, not to mention spoiled by her big brothers and sisters. The three youngest are very excited to see snow for the first time in England.

    The End!
