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.

Birthday Boy

Today is James' 11th birthday. 

James is a loving and caring brother who gladly will break from what he is doing to help a younger sibling. 

James still gets excited over the simple pleasures of life, like lighting his own candles.

We are blessed to have you as our son, James. May you continue to grow and become all God has planned for you to be. 

( I am known for my ugly cakes and this was no exception. It was a home-made ice-cream cake with a layer of chocolate and ice-cream between cake layers, so the taste made up for it's appearance.)
