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.

Other Things

 We have had plenty of other things going on other than playing - 

Julia lost her first top tooth (and she has perfected the biggest cheesiest smile in our family's history.)

We nursed our silky chicken back to health in a Rubbermaid in my bathroom. He never attempted to get out and seemed to enjoy the attention and snacks. 

JD and the kids installed an underground invisible fence for Kylie. It's between 1/2 and 1 acre and is already working like a charm on just the vibrate training mode. The shock is actually turned off and it only vibrated her once and she isn't crossing any little white flags. So much for the days we had to drop everything and chase Kylie down the road! 

The added bonus is that can get the German Shepherd puppy that we have wanted for years. Lincoln is zero watch dog, he won't even chase the deer away, so we want a dog that we feel will be a level of protection for the kids and our home. 

Lastly, I painted half the bedroom over the weekend. I need to get on to the other half and the retreat area, but it's enough to know that I think I like the colors. (It looks way more peach in the picture than it really is - it's more yellow-gold and that top and bottom color really do match.)

I think we will have a BIG announcement tomorrow in the adoption realm, so stop back by.
