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.

Photo Back-up

JD looks a little tired; it may because we were up to midnight after home-group booking Gabriel and Alayna's honey-moon trip and then he had to get up at 4:00 for the airport with Alyssa. This picture was taken at 4:30 a.m.

Moriah went to the airport with JD. Here is our last shot of her before she boarded the plane for Texas. We have already gotten a call that she has arrived safe and sound. Now she is undergoing intensive training before the team leaves for Africa.

If you read my previous blog, you will understand when I am showing this picture of Gabriel (right) and Troy (middle) before he boarded the plane for Montana this morning.

I am a thankful, thankful Momma and I spent the morning celebrating my cleaning the food stall of the barn, bottle feeding the baby goats, lice dusting new chickens that we got yesterday, clipping chicken wings and mowing a bit of grass.

Tonight, we are taking the kids to a play, so that will be fun!

  1. Amazing how God is working things out for Troy. Looks like a big guy, would he be interested in police academy?
