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.

We Are Off!

 This is the current state of my living room. I have successfully semi-packed about 175 pounds of notebooks, over 600 slim-jims, tons of back-packs, five quilts (for a girl's safe house), and rice and beans to feed 250 kids and their workers - I even have the disposable bowls packed. I have also managed to pack some cute clothes and fun toys for the girl's trip home.   We leave in exactly four hours, so I have to get back to work.

Just pray for smooth travels for us and a good week for my crew at home!

Next post from Ethiopia!
