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.

Still Waiting

 We are still waiting...every day I hope for news of passing court. In the mean-time, Alei bought Elijah this new shirt. He wanted to be sure that the camera could make out the words, so he held his breath and puffed out his chest as much as possible. 

I have started putting the kid's names on the walls in their rooms since that I have figured out how to fully operate the borrowed Cricut I have had in my procession for some time. It's an awesome machine, maybe one day I'll buy my own. I have a big plan for the family room down stairs that I'm excited to begin, but first I have to repaint the wall.

We have our second swim meet tonight, thankfully it's a home meet since I have to get Julia in bed at a decent hour for summer school. I'm not sure how I'm going to pull that off the next few swim meets; sometimes my only hope is that Mommy clones will become available!


  1. Ohhh the waiting is so hard and frustrating!! Cute shirt. I would go crazy with that machine if I had one!!

  2. Haha! Love the Shirt! Where was it bought??
