John, Hazel, David


There were four of us in the family effective January 23, 2001. Hazel, David, and I had been a family for 11 years and we were then four with the addition of a new little girl, Kinnera. She would say big girl as she was ten, twelve years ago.  She is from Telangana India and came to us when she was 12 months old. David had been asking for a baby sister for 8 years and we had always wanted another baby so we made this wonderful decision to go ahead and adopt. Plan, our adoption agency,  was delightful to work with and when the adoption process is completed, we were so grateful for their fabulous help. So many people try to go it without a professional agency, and the results are often painful.

Of course, we had other members of the family, namely our dogs and our cat. We had three great dogs and one indoor cat and several barn cats. Since our dogs got to sleep in the house at night and quite often stay out during the day, we were forever cleaning dogs it seems. Our dogs were really fun and awere a great asset to the family. No pictures of the cat, but here are our other family members.
