We are Clarence and Tricia, and we have been married since January of 2000. We truly are best friends who look forward to growing old together. We have five beautiful, adopted children and they are the center of our life. In 2002 we adopted our four oldest children from the foster care system. Sarah, Rebecca, Hannah and William are biological siblings who are now ages 12, 11, 10, and 9. We had planned to adopt a baby, but when we saw our children we fell in love with them and knew that God had a different plan for us at that time. They have brought so much joy into our home and hearts. We enjoyed being parents so much that we wanted more children, and once again God blessed us. Last year we adopted a newborn through ANLC and she brings even more light into all of our lives. Ruth is now over one year old and would love to have a sibling close to her age. The four oldest children did not get to experience a happy young childhood, and because of that they are so loving and protective of their little sister. They would be great big sisters and brother to your baby, too!
