Our story began 15 years ago. The 'Dean and Janice Walker story' began.
And oh..what a rough beginning it was.
Young. Very young. Moving across the country from everything I knew. Shy. Quiet. Insecure.
Oh..it was a rough beginning.
Three years in...we moved to WA state. Running. To start again.
Pregnant with our first child. I was a stay at home mom. Dean made minimum wage.
That was the beginning of our story in WA state.
A mess. Broken. Broken hearted. Broken financially. Just broken.
4 years later. Pregnant with our 4th child. Dean was now the foreman of a construction company. We took the plunge and went out on our own. Started our own construction company. Had to sell our new house. Move into an apartment to make ends meet.
So many questions. So many dreams.
A friend of mine offered me a lifeline. Shy, quiet Janice. I took it. I saw it as a way to change our family's life.
Here we are today. In our 30's. Parents of soon to be 11 young children. Full time stay at home parents, working part time around our kids, honored to help so many people change the game for their families.
To say we are blessed...would be a gross understatement. To say we are grateful...seems so inadequate.
So much pain. So much loss. So much heartache. So much beauty.
God makes such beautiful things out of our mess.
To my husband...happy anniversary.
