I must admit that when Amanda yelled, "Mom! There's a skunk on our deck!" the last thing I expected to see was a skunk.
We watched it sun itself for a short while and then crawl back UNDER our deck. Hmmm. It was definitely better when we could see where it was. We haven't seen or smelled it since but we know it's still near by because it dug up some of the compost from the garden. We plan to get a skunk trap to relocate it.
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
