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.

Swim Team

Swim team has been going quite well; today was the first day that afternoon practice turned to morning practice, which is so much easier on my schedule.

Tori and Julia were checking for bugs before they got in -

Then somebody jumped in and splashed them -

Julia generally enters the pool with pizazz -

Just to prove that I actually have six swimmers this year, here's Moriah and Alyssa racing in back stroke -

And James and Ben exercising before swimming.

Alei is on a plane somewhere between Uganda and New Mexico; she was hoping to send a last update today, but it didn't work out. I'm anxious to hear all the details when she makes it all the way home - a week from now.
