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.

Easter Photos -

Since we were sick on Easter, most of the children wore their Easter attire today and we took a few pictures.

The best we could get family photo is now the new header picture!


  1. I love that they're holding a picture of Gabriel. What a great idea!

  2. Yes, I do love the picture of Gabriel although it made me teary because I thought of Tyler. I'm still finding it strange to have an adult child off doing his own thing. It's a great picture of the family and most importantly it includes Bella and Selah! :)
