Tomorrow begins National Adoption Month. I have a lot swirling in my brain for the month of November in real life and blog-land.
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.

Just a few shots proving that Julia isn't to be trusted alone with markers, especially black ones. I don't know why black is her preferred color, but is seems to often be her first choice. She frequently sneaks markers and colors her finger and toe nails; she calls them her tanglenails. Yesterday, I made her scrub her own artwork, from herself and the wall.
