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.

Biker Gang

On Tuesday mornings, I take care of a biker gang; at least that what Elijah calls himself and his Tuesday morning friends. He derived the term "good biker gang" from an episode of the Backyardigans I'm ashamed to admit. The other members of the biker gang stay here while their mother teaches Alyssa's Zoology class.

Today I made five trips to homeschool co-op; usually it's four on Tuesday and four on Wednesday. While I'm actually quite happy with this co-op, I'm still contemplating putting the children in Classical Conversations next year. I may do the three day training in June before I actually make up my mind and hand over the big bucks.
On a very happy note, we actually closed on our house yesterday just as planned. There were also no hidden costs at closing, like we have encountered once before. At the end of next month we should close on our re-fi on our rental home. So, that really is one huge thing off our mind.

There is little on my mind at the moment other than an adoption. I still don't feel like I have real peace with starting an adoption immediately nor do I have peace with delaying; we are going to be spending serious time praying and fasting over a few major decisions that our family needs to make.

In the meantime, I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and praying for wisdom to know what we are supposed to do.

  1. Hey Miss Jenny,
    Congratulations on closing! I am very happy for you. I know you must be very relieved. I spoke to JD today...I have misplaced your email address, well truth be told, my computer lost it!
    Take care, Love, Shi
