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.

Schooling at the Dentist

 I buzzed through you youngest five children's teeth cleanings this morning. Julia and Elijah both did great, although I had to hold Elijah again for the cleaning. They also played well in the waiting room during their siblings appointments.  I really like our dentist; he is an unmarried Chinese man who is very good with kids and interested in our large family. He commented about Elijah being the baby; I told him that position was soon going to be filled by a new child. He then asked if we were closet millionaires. Man, I wish that were true - it would make this adoption so much easier! 

Tori was the only one with a cavity. Guess who just got demoted from the "I'm big enough to brush my own teeth" back into the "Mommy brushes your teeth at night" category?

I made the boys cram in as much school in the waiting room as we could, because Alyssa and I get to head back this afternoon for our cleaning. Then I get a whole month break before filling and sealant appointments!

JD paid big bucks to have the dossier arrive this morning and they just informed me that it isn't there yet; I sure hope it gets there this afternoon or Fed Ex and I are going to be negotiating a partial refund.
