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.

It turned cold outside, so James and I started the first fire of the season. The wood is so dry that it was much easier to start then last year. It's amazing how the fire draws everyone downstairs; I love the warm and cozy feeling of everyone gathered around the fire reading or doing homework (or running and screaming through the basement like mini-tornadoes!) After the kids are in bed, JD and I have a new habit of watching Duck Dynasty downstairs (so now I get all the hoopla over the show.)
James - chief fire attender
Since the "little pig house" is located near the fire, the little pigs are playing in the pig house by the hour.
Today is an exciting day - I am pulling the girls out of school early and we are heading to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. I'll be back with pictures from our family field trip!
