Imagine she has ten!

This amazing mother of ten kids will turn sixty in March. There is often distain when you hear of someone having that many kids, but I can’t imagine the world without even one of them. Corrie is pictured here with two of her seven boys. Bryan’s twenty one and the youngest child, ten years younger, at eleven.

Little brother begged mom to visit big brother last friday, a rare event. The boys played video games and music together while us ladies had coffee and a chat!

Being an only child, Pepper cherishes every moment spent with this loving family. All the children have been taught excellent manners and respect for each others space. Raised in an average sized home it was imperative to live harmoniously. Like any family, differences occur, but for the most part they’re all friends. Family gatherings fill this mother with so much pride and joy! Corrie really embraces Pepper as one of her own, it thrills me that she found such an awesome family to have in her life!

Devastated by the death of her mom when she was just a child, I don’t think Corrie truly ever recovered. Having ten kids assures she will never be alone again!

That is absolutely amazing and wonderful at the same time. I imagine it can be quite a struggle with that many children but the rewards far out weigh them I'm sure.
You and Pepper are both lucky to have this family in your lives.

Your friend reminds me of one of my friends in the UK, she is one of eight and they are a very close-knit and absolutely delightful family. Mind you, she is the only one who is not married with children (she turned 40 this year) and that weighs heavily on her.

Beautiful tribute.
