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.

Laundry Room -- Part 2

For the first time ever, I actually have a laundry room. Until now, I've had the wonderful laundry closet or the washer and dryer in a small mud room. The laundry room required some design variations due to other pipes that required a bump out wall, but it all worked out fine. Along the left wall we have the freezer, the laundry sorter bag which is going to be replaced with three hampers for pre-sorting, the new washer and dryer, the older stackable unit and a bit of room on the back wall for shelves.

Along the right wall, JD put in a utility sink, cabinets and a counter for folding. Past the counter is laundry basket room and a drying rack spot. We are also going to have a clothes rod so I can pre-hang things before they travel upstairs.

There's actually a window over the ugly hamper area. I also plan to enlarge and frame some laundry shots that we took in Liberia. Remembering the women scrubbing clothes on rocks along the creeks in Liberia will help me be thankful even when I'm buried in the laundry room!
