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.

Some Pre-Bed Pictures

 These were taken last night before bed - 

 Tuesday morning are our craziest morning of the week. Everyday, JD takes Moriah at 7:00 a.m. to school, then I head to the bus stop with Tori and Julia at 8:05; but on Tuesdays I throw in getting everyone ready to leave the house at 8:40 to take Alyssa to Classical Conversations. We all then have to leave again by 10:30 to pick up Moriah. Today I headed to the little people's room to get their clothes and came back to this. The girls always want to ride on the boy's backs and shoulders, so James and Ben were attempting to keep the girls happy while they also obeyed and started math.

By they way, the girls did great shopping since they have carts at the Commissary with double seats!
