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.

Today - Haircuts; Tomorrow - Corn-rows

Tonight we cut the four boys' hair out on the patio. I love it when it's cool enough to not make the mess in the kitchen. Do you think Elijah was slightly over-due for a trim?
He didn't enjoy the process too much, but did admire himself in the mirror when it was all over.

Thankfully, Gabriel, James and Ben are much easier. JD has gotten really good at tapering Ben's hair on the sides. Ben was happy with the new cut.

We have saved a ton over the years cutting the boys hair ourselves. I honestly also think it's faster than driving and waiting at a barber shop.
Tomorrow a friend's daughter is coming to corn-row Tori and Julia's hair, so the morning will be spent taking out their current braids, washing and combing!

  1. how in the world do you know how to cut Elijah's hair without gapping it up?? when Asher's was longer i tried that & totally messed it up. We ended up getting a short boy cut (this was about a year & a half ago!)
