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.

Modern Day Slavery

Human trafficking recently surpassed drugs as the biggest illegal money maker. Unfortunately, there are many slaves working in plain sight right here is America. Here's a story of 20 West African girls that were brought to America for an education and were forced to work in New Jersey braid shops 7 days a week without pay for years.


So, so sad.
