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.

We are definitely in the midst of a Virginia blizzard. There is about a foot of snow so far and it looks like it could go another few days. Thankfully we still have power; however, it's flashed a few times and my neighbors down the road have lost theirs. Every meal and load of laundry, I'm very thankful.

I'm about half way through painting the dining room. Elijah has decided that the only way he can nap the last few days is in my arms; every time I lay him down, he wakes right up. It's slowing down my paint progress a bit. I think we'll do some bedroom cleaning and organizing tomorrow; the kids will love that!
