Cheryl's Parenting Journal

StorkNet is very pleased to bring you Cheryl's parenting journal.

Cheryl (46) and her husband Brian have been married for 23 years. After three miscarriages and six years of unexplained fertility, the Butlers adopted a daughter on the day she was born. Soon after, the floodgates opened and Cheryl conceived her first son. The rest, as they say, is history as Cheryl and Brian are now the proud parents of 8 children between the ages of 5 and 17.

Join Cheryl as she shared the ups and downs and all arounds of parenting a large family.
