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.

Pool Ball

Elijah is a pool fanatic, not the swimming type of pool, but the pool table and pool ball kind. For months he has been slightly obsessed with the pool table, balls and the game itself. In fact, his first word combination was "good shot!" He has been saying it for months and considers it the ultimate compliment. The phrase has carried over to the point we compliment each other for a variety of activities during with the day with "good shot." When he's upstairs and hears the clang of the pool balls, he bolts for the stairs; he doesn't want to risk missing a good shot! Here's our little Buddy with the game.

Thankfully, he can't reach the balls yet without assistance.

The game has now carried over to the little girls. They often play pool on the toy train table, with raquet balls and whatever works as a stick. Here they were yesterday, notice Tori's little fingers holding the pool cue just the way she has observed.

I have looked for a small pool table on Craigs list that they can actually play; I think I need to keep looking.
