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.

I finished painting the bedroom yesterday, although it isn't all put back together completely. Today we painted the majority of the screened-in porch; we at least finished painting the area that needed to be done before screening. JD and Alyssa started painting at 9:00 a.m. and I helped once I came home from my home school meeting after lunch.
Alyssa was the designated paint helper because she did it for payment toward a youth retreat that she went on. She did a good job!
We all celebrated with a pizza picnic on the porch; I'm so thankful for such a beautiful day!
