Hello everyone, I live in Rockville, MD, just north of Washington, DC, briefly known for the sniper that shot people all around the beltway. We were also the HQ for McGruff the anti crime dog, "Take a bite out of crime." I've been around too long. My family tore me away from Texas when I was 14. But I love the Chesapeake, the Potomac, the Catoctin mountains, I'm home here. I'd be more at home in heaven, where Jesus makes all things right. I've got no dramatic history, yet, to me I've got too much history. I've got nothing like David's history, yet I cling to the hope that David, Uriah, and Jonathan (and perhaps even Saul) are shoulder to shoulder in heaven. Only by the blood of Christ could anything like this be. My wife and I adopted two retarded daughters 25 years ago, and we're still a family. One has the mind of a 3 to 4 year old and talks a blue streak. The other, the mind of less than a two year old, but she can walk, just not talk. Obviously my wife's a living saint. God has been good to us. She just earned a doctorate in Education this year, teaches educational psychology online for one university and Bible online for another university, and teaches kindergarten at a Christian school here in Rockville. Thank you to those who have already graciously welcomed me.
