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.

Fall Pictures

I hauled the kids outside today to get some new fall pictures for my picture wall; a good bonus was that we were able to update the pictures of the kids along the side of the blog. Now I just need a new picture of JD and I.

Here's a few girl group pictures that I was happy with.

Tori and Julia, also referred to as "the little girls - "

Alyssa, Alei and Moriah, who are now "the big girls - "

I totally intended on taking a group shot of the boys, but that never happened. It took me about 100 shots of Elijah before I even got one you could see his face; he was constant motion.

Here's some of the behind the scene shots.

We have a exciting weekend planned, including a Liberian reunion on Sunday!
