Welcome to Little Earthling Blog (formerly A Baker’s Dozen and Apollo XIV).  My name is Renee. I am 39 years old and married to a hottie Canadian-turned-American, Chuck. I have been blogging since September 2006 (though unfortunately some of the original blog was lost when I moved here to WordPress).

Chuck and I have grown our large family through adoption and birth. We have fourteen children: five adopted (foster adopt, private adoption and international adoption) and nine biological children.

I gave birth to our first eight babies in nine years, then came our grand finale, Apollo XIV, in June 2010. And what a finale he was, heart defect and all.  Our four oldest have escaped our clutches and moved out of the house. To learn more click on Meet the Kids.

We homeschooled most of our large family until this year. This year, Enoch (15) and Kalina (14) and homeschooling. Judah will attend a university in Washington and Tilly (17) will complete her second year of community college. I love reading, writing, knitting, Jesus, photography, chocolate, and of course, coffee.

I own my own photography business Little Earthling Photography where I specialize in birth and newborn photography.

I accept select sponsored blog post and product reviews if I feel that they fit in with our family values and goals.
