Happy Sunday evening!
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.

Today was youth Sunday at our church; it's the once a year Sunday that the youth do the entire service. Gabriel spoke for the third year in a row, sadly, it was also his last because he is technically not a youth next year. I can't believe I am a mother to an almost 18 year old! Gabriel and Alei both also participated in the drama. Unfortunately, I was holding Elijah and JD was videoing, therefore, there are no postable pictures. Since I can't show my teens on Youth Sunday, I'll show my gardening helpers. Elijah really wanted to push the wheel-barrow, but it wouldn't work for him for some reason.
