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.

 Elijah was invited to a super-hero party yesterday; he went as Spider Man thanks to my friend Wendy who loaned us the fabulous costume complete with fake muscles. Elijah wore the mask on top of his head and called it a Spiderman helmet. (He has worn the helmet all day today also and is currently napping in it.) He was pretty impressed with his outfit and the toys and friends to play with at the party. 

This isn't the best quality picture since it was taken with Alei's phone on a potty break; Elijah looked in the mirror and yelled, "I am Spiderman" nice and loud. 

Of course, I don't think Elijah has a clue who Spiderman actually is, but that hasn't swayed his enthusiasm.
