OUR PLANS MULTIPLIED

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.

Tractor Time With Dad

The biggest trauma that Elijah can fathom in his short, blessed life happened yesterday. He is a big, big Daddy fan and waited hours for his Da-Da to come home from work. When finally Dad came home, he held him and hugged him, but then put him down to try and clear snow before dark set in. Since Elijah loves his Dad, loves the tractor and doesn't mind the snow, his little heart was broken. Nothing could distract him as he wailed at the window for a full 30 minutes - wailing about his Dad and the tractor.

After 30 minutes, we couldn't take it anymore, so we bundled him up and Alei carried him across the snow and ice to Dad on the tractor. He spent the rest of the time happily bobbing around on the tractor.

Now, he's a happy boy again.... singing a much better song.
