My name is Gina I am a proud mother of an 8th month old daughter, Kiersten.. She is adopted. My husband and I have had her since the moment she was born. Im in the Army Reserves and Yes I have been overseas.. Matter of fact I was deployed when we recieved the word about our daughter.. I got to come home for the birth and stay with her and my husband for 3 weeks. I have been home now for 3 1/2 months.. I love decorating. I watch HGTV a lot.. I am a big Jon & Kate Plus 8 fan and I love to cook. Being a mother for me is truly amazing since I did not carry my daughter and she is not of my blood. I have a lot of emotions that go along with this, because she was 3 weeks old when I went back to the desert and I was gone until she was almost 5 months old. Now I am home with her all the time. My husband travels for his job alot, so at least 3 days a week my daughter and I are here alone..
