Welcome everyone!  For my first post, I’d love to introduce my family to you.


We are the Shafer’s, party of six!  Mark and I have been married for 20 years and I love the life that we have created together.   We have four beautiful children:  Madeline, Lily, Jude and Jaidin.  Two of our kiddos are biological and two are adopted from China.  Our family has an amazing story that is still being written and I’m looking forward to sharing it in this space.   We love each other, we love Jesus and we navigate life’s ups, downs and in betweens by holding fast to our faith.   I’m glad you are here!
