Mary Ostyn lives in Nampa, Idaho with her husband John and six of their ten children. The youngest six arrived via adoption. The oldest four have already graduated from homeschooling, headed off to college, and (in two cases) to marriage and motherhood. Rumor has it that her new grand-babies (both born this spring) will also be taught at home. Ostyn’s passions include: mothering, adoption, homeschooling, cooking, and encouraging other mothers on their parenting journey. Her books include The Sane Woman’s Guide to Mothering a Larger Family and Family Feasts for $75 a Week. Ostyn’s favorite night of the week is Saturday, when everyone comes home for dinner. She blogs at http://owlhaven.net.
