Welcome to Life With My Special Ks! We are a modern stone age family... oh wait, that was someone else. We are a pretty typical family... dad's in the Army, mom stays home to raise the kids, 2 girls, 2 boys, but just to shake things up we decided to adopt! Kellsey came home on December 5, 2009. After 3 long years of ups and downs, good times and bad and a diagnosis of RAD, we made the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our little girl and place her with a family who is better equipped to care for her very special needs. She is doing well in her new environment and we are hopeful for her future. I'm glad you've stopped by to visit! Here is some information and fun facts about our family! We hope you'll come back again and again!!
