OUR PLANS MULTIPLIED
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.

Alyssa has been in Africa for over six weeks and this is the first picture I have seen of her up close; I think it may have been the message I sent asking if she was sure she was there, because I couldn't find her in the group photos. She spent the last week doing Muslim ministry. She is actually flying from S. Africa to Texas right now and then will be home late Thursday night from Texas. We are ready to welcome her home - while the summer has gone fast, it seems that she has been gone a long time.
