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.

December 31st

We headed to D.C. today for our first post-placement visit for our adoption agency. The big news is that Bella ate chicken at Chick Fil A - that is her first bite of meat since I've met her!

The other good news is that the girls like any occasion that involves wearing a tutu. 

This isn't my official New Years post....I will try for that one tomorrow. 


  1. So adorable! Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  2. Really, what occasion doesn't call for wearing a tutu? :)
