OUR PLANS MULTIPLIED

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.

Elijah's New Passion

Elijah is thrilled with steering-wheels; we call them drive-drives. Now his passion has expanded to the tractor and 4-wheeler. Here he is helping his Daddy mow. He rides and rides until he falls asleep.


Sunday, I spent a few hours slowly laying grass-seed with the spreader on the 4-wheeler. Of course, it went a lot more quickly and smoothly with Julia AND Elijah's help. It's less exciting than mowing, but it sure kept two little people happy.

Elijah may need a steering wheel for entertainment, but the other kids only need a seat. This is the back-seat of the van sitting in the driveway doubling as a roller coaster. Our old TV died, so JD and the kids are off buying a new one off of Craig's list.

crazy kids....
