I have never been a member of a large family…let alone the head of one. Growing up it was only my younger brother and me within our household with either my mom or dad. We enjoyed our separate rooms and reveled in our lone activities. In college, I did not live in the dormitories or pledge a sorority, so I did not experience communal living like so many others. As an adult, I lived with a couple of roommate, but we always had our individual space. Before leaving for Uganda, Antwain and I resided in a quiet home in Kansas City.
I have always been fascinated by the workings of large families, marveling at the patience and organization of parents of large families. The relationships that are formed within large families are intriguing to me.
