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.

Unreached Perspective

Aunt Deb designed this picture with some of the children to illustrate a mission point. The group on the right is the reached world - not necessarily Christians, but the percentage of the population that has heard something about the God of the Bible. You can gather by Selah's head-covering the percentage of them that are Mu*lim. The middle group represents the unreached people that have never heard the name of Jesus. The far left group shows the unreached Mu*lims that that have never heard the Gospel.

I had the most cooperative, smiley children ever for this photo shoot, which was great because we had very little daylight to work with. Here's Selah with our dog, Toby. If you have ever met Toby, he is the most insecure dog on the planet and it took him a few hours to get over the trauma of Selah holding him for a photograph. Selah looks cute in her scarf though and was quite pleased to wear it.
