Baby #11 is really seven!!!

Wow, My baby E is seven today. Everyone thought it was pretty funny that my 11th child was 11 lbs. The joke was baby #12 will be 12lbs...not if I (or my midwife) could help it! 

Dear Eric, you are a super sensitive and sweet young man. Daddy and I love you very much and can't wait to see what God has in store for you. This is a big year for you! You get  your First Penance and your First Holy Communion. Keep close to Jesus and everything in life will be fine. We love you forever, like you for always, as long as we are living our baby you'll be!!!

daddy is still mad at me for cutting your hair!

FOCUS Missionaries

My son is becoming a FOCUS missionary and is looking for some financial support during his two year service. If you would like to learn more or would like to consider helping him out please click here.

Feel free to message me if you would like more info or want him to contact you more about this ministry.
Thanks so much and here is his bio:

                                         Joshua and one of his baby brothers and godson

Vision for Life
My name is Joshua Fatzinger. I am from Bowie, MD, one of thirteen amazing kids to two even more amazing parents. Born and raised Catholic, homeschooled through high-school, I joined the Seminary for 3 years after high-school. After discerning out I attended the University of Maryland, College Park. There I was challenged in my faith like I never had before. Seeing the war on faith in universities has made me believe even more in the urgency of FOCUS's mission in equipping college students for life though a real and passionate friendship with Christ. Please join my support team to give me the chance to fulfill my mission of becoming a saint and leading others closer to sanctity by the grace of Christ.
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?" Romans 8:31-35

Its been a long time since I blogged...it feels nice to be back!
