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.

The Wedding

The reason that we are on this trip to Charleston is because JD's beautiful niece, Sophia, got married on Mother's Day. We decided to stay the week and turn it into our vacation as well, but she's the real reason we are here!

The wedding was outside, on the river, on a perfect, perfect day. Alei was one of Sophia's bridesmaids. I about cried watching her walk in; time is going so fast these days that it won't seem like long until it's one of my girls walking down the aisle as the bride!

After the wedding, Elijah wanted to smell Alei's flowers.

And give Sophia a kiss.

Here's Alei at the reception. She wanted a picture to replace her big one on the "kid" wall at home.

And here's Alei loving on Elijah. He likes all his sisters constant kissing.

Alyssa caught the wedding bouquet; she was pleased with the catch and is drying the flowers for long-term keeping.

We wish you well, Sophia and Frankie!
