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.

I Did It

I painted the entry way and I actually think I like the color. I wanted to just paint it tan, but since the entire down-stairs is tan, my carpet is tan and my furniture is tan, I thought I should go with some color. So, it's still pretty neutral with a bit of green. Here's Julia proudly posing by the window that she taped up for me while I painted.

I've dreaded painting since we moved in, but here's the wall segment behind Julia that demonstrates why it must be done.

9 kids over 18 months put their hands on the wall a lot!
