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.

Selah's New Smile

 Here's a before shot of Selah's smile -

And here's a picture of the new smile. There is a lot of silver with a big smile, but we really only see the white when she talks. Hopefully, her permanent teeth will all come in pretty and white.

Selah feels great and went to Tori and Julia's first soccer game today. Tori played goalie half the game.

And Julia ran and ran. It was fun to watch them and listen to Selah and Bella yell, "Go, Tori" and "Go Julia".


  1. One of my friends daughter has a lot of silver in her mouth too. My daughter responded by saying, "I want sparkles in my teeth too." No, you don't, Honey. Trust me!"

  2. Very energetic pοst, I lоvеd that bit. Will there be a pаrt 2?
