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.

It's a few days before Christmas - my house needs a good cleaning, my laundry needs attention, I have shopping to do as well as baking, I have gifts to wrap, but...I did hair all afternoon. As my fellow adoptive Moms know, sometimes hair takes all priority. I'm hoping that at some point tomorrow, all nine of my kids will be home to re-take a Christmas picture, so I had to finish Christmas hair. I did Tori a few days ago and Julia was my today victim project.
Ignore the white - she isn't going grey, it's just the coconut oil that is soaking it.
All this hair bored Elijah to sleep and I'm off to try to accomplish more.
