Year One: Atticus and Katie get married. They discover than they are unable to have children of their own, and decide that they will eventually adopt. They spend the year settling into their new home, and do not adopt any children.

 

Year Two: Atticus and Katie welcome Delphine Gabriela, a three-year-old girl from Haiti. 

 

Year Three: Four-year-old Delphine has been begging her parents for a younger sibling. So, the Martins adopt a newborn baby boy. His mother is 16 years old, and has no support system. As such, she believes that her son will have a better life if she gives him up. She only wants minimal contact in the form of yearly pictures and updates. His name is Benjamin Alexander,but his family calls him Benji.

 

Year Four: Delphine and Benji get a big sister when the family welcomes a 12-year-old girl named Isabella Grace, who goes by Bella. She had been in foster care for the last 7 years, and is so happy to finally have a forever home. Despite her rough upbringing, Bella is a happy, resilient child with no major problems.

 

Year Five: Atticus and Kate adopt a six-year-old boy from China. His name is Wei Huang. He loves being a big brother and playing with two-year-old Benji. 

 

Year Six: Between having one child starting high school, one starting preschool, and one learning English, Atticus and Kate decide they are too busy this year to welcome another child into their home.

 

Year Seven: The Martins adopt a baby boy. His parents were both freshmen in college, and his mother never wanted a baby. She walked out as soon as he was born, leaving him with his father Aaron. Since Aaron is only 19 and single, he feels that he cannot properly care for his son. However, he still wants to be a part of his son's life, so the Martins go for open adoption. The new member of their family is named Isaac James. 

 

Year Eight: The family takes another year off from adopting to focus on their five children.

 

Year Nine: Kate and Atticus welcome 7-year-old twins into their home. They are named Jacob Matthew and Olivia Madison, and they've spent the last three years in foster care. Jacob has anger issues and Olivia is falling behind in school, but the Martins hope that living in a stable, loving home will help the twins. 

 

Year Ten: The family welcomes a three-year-old girl from Germany. Little Anneliese Renata fits in the family well. Olivia in particular loves having a little sister to play with, and Anneliese and Isaac quickly become close, since they're the same age. With eight children, Atticus and Kate decide that they have the prefect number of children.

DH: Amir Kjell Engberg

DW: Mona Bethan Engberg (nee Aiken)

 

Year 1 (2012):

After being married five years we've decided to start our own family. With Amir being adopted himself we decided to go that route ourselves. We brought home our little girl Alexandra Renee. We have an open adoption with her father Aaron who unexpectedly found himself a single father and unable to care for his daughter.

 

Year 2 (2013):

Andy proved herself to be a difficult baby and we decided that it would be better if we didn't adopt this year and enjoyed our time with our daughter.

 

Year 3 (2014):

Luciana Nuria and Noelia Teodora came home from Argentina with us. Twins proved even more difficult than we'd imagined but we having Ana and Lia with us is worth every second of the sleepless nights.

 

Year 4 (2015):

This year we figured that since our lives couldn't get any more chaotic we adopted Evariste Guillarme and Baptiste Bernard, two year old twin boys from Haiti. Suddenly we had five kids under the age of three. Our lives seemed completely full. However life was throwing more surprises our way.

 

Year 5 (2016):

We brought home a twelve year old girl from foster care. Her file said that she had anger issues however Amir's file said similar things and the love of a family made all the difference. Madison Grace seems that she fits right in with the craziness of our family. We've made her her own quiet space for when things are just too much and she needs to de-escalate and calm down.

 

Year 6 (2017):

Call us crazy but Amir got a huge promotion and we felt that we could provide another child a loving home and we decided to adopt internationally again. We brought home a one year old boy named Harland Dawie from South Africa. Our older kids adore him and he's loving the attention.

 

Year 7 (2018):

Having adopted four years in a row we took a year off. It was nice to not worry about log-in-dates and dossiers and spend the extra time with our kids.

 

Year 8 (2019):

With Madison starting high school and all but Harley in school we were helping with homework and taking weekend trips throughout the area.

 

Year 9 (2020):

For a third year in a row we haven't adopted. Harley starts school next year and I'm afraid the house will feel empty. Seeing the way my children have grown in the past years makes me realize that they aren't my babies anymore.

 

Year 10 (2021):

It came to our knowledge that there were seven year old twins in foster care that would seem to be passed over time and time again. While Mason Daniel had no notable delays his sister Ava Charlotte was on the autism spectrum and had sever delays. Our family feels complete with our last two little ones coming home.

 

Amir and Mona with Madison Grace (16), Alexandra "Andy" Renee (10), Evariste Guillarme (9) and Baptiste Bernard (9), Luciana "Ana" Nuria (7) and Neolia "Lia" Teodora (7), Mason Daniel (7) and Ava Charlotte (7), Harland Dawie (5).
