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.

Bad Guys Update
Elijah is pretty impressed with police officers; he never calls them police men - they are always officers. Last night he tucked his police truck into my bed and lovingly covered it up at bed time. Several times a day, we hear, "put your hands up." Generally, once you put your hands up, he shoots you anyway. JD explained to him that the police don't shoot if the bad guy puts his hands up. This morning we were discussing it and I told him that the police hand-cuff them and take them to jail. Elijah confidently told me that the police take them to jail and them shoot them at the jail. Julia kicked in with five year old wisdom to say, "Elijah, they don't shoot them at the jail; they just make them pick up garbage along the roads."
