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.

Family Camp - Part One

We were invited to take the kids to family camp over the weekend in the place of another family that cancelled last minute. We were probably larger than the other family, but the camp was really excited to have us come and it led to many opportunities to speak to people about adoption.

We stayed in a cabin that had eight beds, two bunks and four single beds. We had to also cram an air mattress in, so it was cozy sleeping.

The kids got to fish which was a first for many of them.

We also got to canoe, which was Selah's absolute favorite activity.

There was some spontaneous tree climbing -

There was the opportunity to do several different crafts.

Since Selah and Bella know NO fear of strangers, they were enjoyed by the nicest group of college aged camp counselors.
