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.

Tori Bug

Tori definitely had my attention when she walked in the office and said, "Don't worry, Mom, it's washable." Then she popped her little hand up to show me her finger puppets. She's a smart and creative little girl.

We have a tradition called sunday soda; the kids each get a canned soda on Sunday with their lunch. Other than that, they only have it for special occasions. Last Sunday I was whipping up lunch and Tori chose her soda. I told her that she could put it in the fridge and let it get cold while she waited for her lunch. She told me, "that's ok, I'm going to drink it the perfectly way God made it - warm."

  1. hahhahaha!!! That made me smile so big!!!! Evan once drew the outline of his hand on a piece of paper and then meticulisly colored a little person on each of the fingers!!! When I saw Tori's fingers, it immediately reminded me of his! Her idea is wonderfully innovative and creative!! I'm so impressed!!!! :)
