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 traveling back to Ethiopia this year to bring home our 12th child. We have found God's ways are higher than our ways and true joy is found in following His plan!

Selah is out of surgery and doing well. Her teeth look fabulous from the little peak I could sneak. I'm getting the car and the nurse is bringing her down in a wheel chair with Alyssa.
I am living my dream of being a mom of many, including adopted children, and living on a farm. Our farm is a work in progress, but we have a beautiful Amish barn. I am using this blog to chronicle our rarely dull day to day life as a memory for my children.
