Welcome to "THE LOVING FAMILY."  If you are looking for information on what it is like to adopt or blend a family or just help you to get along better with your parents or kids, you have come to the right place. The pages in this website are filled with ideas about having a respectful, fun, Christian family life.  A life that is happy and works well. It's about family members who like each other and get along.  If this is the kind of life you would like to have, read on!  We would love to hear from you, too!

You can reach us at  MarkOLark@aol.com. (Please include "Loving Family" in the subject line) Please remember, we are a FAMILY; we are not psychologists or therapists.  We are not ordained ministers.  We are, however, a family with adoptive and step children who feel GOOD about the family they are part of.
