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.

The Princess Room has Moved!

Here's coming in the door of the new princess room. I bought a few African art pieces for the kid's rooms in Liberia.

I hung the beautiful quilts that the church presented to the girls at their dedication.

Look at that smile on Julia's face, makes it worth the work!

My blogger is still messed up. Until I hit post, the pictures show up as enormous text. Anyone else having this problem? I can't re-arrange the pictures or write anything between them. (Not anymore, thank you, Donna!)

Room moving was a lot of work, but now that the princess room is done, I can move on to painting the sun-room/guest room/Elijah room/whatever it will be room.

I was so sad watching the Orphan Relief video of the children's moldy foam "beds" and then looking at Tori and Julia's princess comforters. I love bedding and I want to see the children at Gold Child orphanage have beds and sheets! That's what I really want for Christmas!


  1. At the top of the posting section there are tabs for 'edit hmtl' and 'compose' You have probably accidentally hit the 'edit hmtl' tab. Click the compose and that should put your pictures back up so you can see them and move them around.

    Hope that helps and it is that simple.

    The girls room is beautiful.

  2. It was that simple - thanks so much!

  3. I love projects like that. It breaks up the monotony of the day. THe room looks fantastic.
