In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Bungee Jumping and Sibling Relationships

This is probably the only time that I can post pictures of Gabriel and not have him complain about it. Here he is being craned up, up into the air.

And here he is falling, falling down.

Then he bounced around and "flew" overhead for a while. It amazes me that he considers this fun! It's nice to know that I didn't transmit my fear of heights to my kids.

While we were waiting for Gabriel's adventure, I snapped these pictures of Tori and Elijah. She has always been so sweet to him and it's fun to watch them interact.

The younger years are simpler!


  1. Right on with that last statement!!

    It would have scared me to death to watch my son do that. Thankfully he has never asked!!

  2. Oh yes....the younger years are Sooooooo much simpler!
