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.

Please notice the badge on the right side of my blog for little Mercy. Mercy is a four year old little girl in Uganda that will die without medical treatment outside of Uganda. She appears to have a medical condition that causes frequent seizures and needs to be treated by a neurosurgeon. Things can be arranged for Mercy to receive care in America, but funds must be raised to bring her here. If you click on the badge, it will take you to another adoptive mom's blog who is doing an iPod touch raffle for anyone who will donate towards saving Mercy. Mercy's family abandoned her, her only hope lies in the compassion of strangers - like you and me! Consider giving up something this week - a trip through McDonalds or Starbucks and donating the money to Mercy. Let's be Jesus' hands to Mercy.
