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.

Last Post from America...I sure hope to have Internet enough to post from Ethiopia. It's hard to believe that we're 15 hours away from African soil! So far things have been smooth. My backpack was snagged in security to be searched, but the most dangerous thing I had packed was chocolate. JD is currently in line trying to get seats next to each other instead of across the aisles. Due to the time change, it will be Sunday morning when we land (although it will only feel like 2:00a.m.) so we need to get some sleep on the flight, and I would rather fall over on JD than some stranger next to me. 

Thank you, everyone, who has supported us on this journey - it's one of the high-lights of our lives!
