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.

It's Poppy Dip

I was recently introduced to a wonderful website of a lady named Sallee who makes little girl dresses as a fund raiser for her third adoption to Ethiopia. The dresses are adorable and you get to pick your fabric, then choose the dress style. Here's the coordinating ones I ordered for Tori and Julia. I initially was going to save them as their Easter dresses, but I don't think we can wait, so I'm going to buy them some leggings to wear under them for the winter. (Then I can order again for Easter!)

Julia still likes to wear a dress most days and she would be thrilled with an entire ward-robe of Poppy Dips!

Julia also performed some basic comfort and durability tests on her new dress and it passed with flying colors!

So, check with http://itspoppydip.blogspot.com/ when you want an adorable dress for your little girl and help fund an adoption at the same time.

(The little Poppy Dip model is Sallee's daughter from Ethiopia. She's cute enough to convince you to adopt a little Ethiopian just to wear the dresses!)


  1. You bet! Turtlenecks and leggings extend those summer dresses well into winter!

  2. If only I had a girl to wear those! ;)

    The dresses are really cute...and so are your girls!
