Mark and Geri are adopted.  We got Mark on Christmas Eve when he was 11 days old, and they gave us only one days notice, What A Christmas That Was!!!  Geri was 10 months old.  We didn't even ask for a second child, but the family that had her could not keep her for some reason, and all of our paper work was there from they gave us a call.  And now they are too old to send back!
