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.

Happy Balentines Day

Happy Valentines (or Balentines) Day from all of us. Moriah set the little people up for pictures yesterday.

Elijah took a few, then went on to more important business.

Tori and Julia are good little models.

Of course, they also tend to get a bit silly.

Here's an example of Tori's big eyes and Julia's big smile.

Have a blessed day with those you love.
