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.

Why We Only Have Washable Markers!

Here are two reasons that the only markers accessible in our home are washable: Julia did this masterpiece two days ago on her bed -
Then, the next day, she spiffied up the doll-house and the carpet that unfortunately was around the house.

What I didn't get a picture of was her legs, they were streaked with the same marker.

Her reply? Well, (with hands on her hips) I can clean it!


  1. oh man...automatic spanking. i mean she is cute, but still...i hate when they do that...it's such a hard place they put us in when we have to discipline them like that. but again, she is cute!!
