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.

Venom For A Deal

I've always been a CVS deal shopper, but even more now that Alei works there. Their prices are way high, but they offer Extra Bucks deals that are quite fabulous each week. Often the item is free once you get your extra bucks, which was the deal last week for this - It's a homeopathic pain reducer that lists necks and backs on the box. The tiny spray bottle is normally $18.99, but was free after EB, so I bought one. It tastes pretty bad, but Alei has decided to dedicate herself to making sure that I use it four times a day as per instructions. So, after days of using it, I finally took a moment to read the ingredient list and the primary ingredient is COBRA VENOM. JD then pointed out that it is called COBROxin; wow, I didn't even make that connection! In case you're wondering, I'm still using it; I didn't die the first several days, so now we'll just see if it works at all.
