We Would Like to Introduce Ourselves
The Deal Family
Who We Are
Hello! We are the Deal family from Batesville, Indiana
We are Brayton and Jeneen Deal. My husband and I were middle school sweethearts and I knew from the moment I saw him he was going to become stuck with me for the rest of his life and we have been married for 26 years on April 28th!
We are a family of 9 children Bj (26), Jacob (23), Brittany (21), Nicholas (15), Jackson (7), Cameron (5), Ella (4), Lily Mae (4), Charlie (3) and we currently have one foster baby Aryiana (6 months). We are happily in the process of making our family hit the big 11! The four eldest children are our biological, the next three we fostered to adopt here in the states, and the last two we adopted from China a couple years ago. Our family might already be huge, but that just means we have so much more love to offer and spread to the people of this world.
My husband is self-employed working construction and I am a stay at home momma that holds down the fort! We have been located in a small town of Batesville, Indiana that holds about 6,000 people. Both Brayton and I were born into big families. He is the second eldest of 6 children and I am the youngest of 5. I grew up as a Southern Baptist and he was raised as a Catholic. I started to fall from God after my parents had gotten a divorce when I turned 15, but he later snatched us back up in our early 20's and we've never looked back since! God is our savior, our redeemer, our Yahweh, our family’s strength, our everything! He has held us since the beginning of time and has never let us go. Jesus has captured us in his love and has been there through the unbearable times, such as the loss of our last child during pregnancy, and through the times of rejoicing, such as each day we've laid eyes on every single one of our children for the first time.
