Hi, we are the Wilkins Family! We are from Phoenix, AZ. I, Shalyn Desiree Wikins, am Jonathan Deschaine's younger sister. (3/19/1986). Family and friends usually call me Lyn. I used to be a teacher until my second child was adopted, in fourth and fifth grades, specifically, but am hoping to get back to it after the new baby comes. I met my husband, Joseph "Seph" Nicholas Wilkins (11/16/1985), in college. Seph is an electrician. (OOC: I was very young, 4-5 at the time, but I met a Joseph "Seph" in church once. He was a teen at the time.)
Our first daughter, Judith Anais, was born June 5, 2006. Our reason for moving here was that Judith and her cousin Mariah were having trouble in school due to the excessive amount of fights or crimes that took place there. Judith loves ballet and swimming.
Mariah Blythe Marcum, born October 12, 2006, is Judith's cousin, the daughter of Jonathan's and my other sister, Patricia. In addition to the school not being a suitable learning environment, her parents were just divorced, so they said she could come live with us for awhile. Mariah is still trying to figure out what she wants to do, but isn't as active as Judith.
Natalie Mary Wilkins was born March 24, 2013 in St. Petersburg, Russia. When she came home to us, she was 9 months old (Hence the name Natalie Mary, since she came on Christmas Eve) and I had been having trouble conceiving. She loves any baby she meets! She will also talk your ear off if you let her.
Alma Regina Wilkins was born on April 4, 2013 in Scottsdale, AZ and was adopted at birth.She is a funny, precocious little girl, but in a different way than Natalie is. Alma is more driven and enjoys things like science experiments, though she loves all of school.
Bronson Patrick Wilkins was born December 18, 2014. He can't wait for the new baby to arrive in September! This pregnancy has been hard because of the timing- we found out I was pregnant just as Judith and Mariah's school problems came to a head! Bron hasn't been much trouble, but he does love dirt. If you let him outside, be prepared for a mess. He will track mud inside if it rains!
Oliver Gage Wilkins is the current youngest, born February 22, 2015 and also adopted. He and Bron stick to each other like velcro, and he loves toy cars and trucks. He's also obsessed with icky things, like worms and snakes.
The new baby is EDD September 17. We are pretty sure we're not going to find out what it is.
