OUR PLANS MULTIPLIED
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.

Day One High-light - Jelly Fish
Another adventure was that several of the children mastered chop-sticks; not Elijah, but a few of the older ones.
I'm quite sure Ben ate his weight in seafood. He ate several servings of several of the courses. There were times it wasn't even enjoyable to watch, like when he dug the meat of the lobster out from around the brain. I don't think there was anything he didn't love until raw oysters at the wedding reception. He tried one and gave the other two to Grandma!
I'm going to work on wedding pictures and download a picture of Elijah being the "ring bear." To give you a hint, our joke is, "would the real ring bear please walk forward."
