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.

Years ago, my oldest four children took some riding lessons. It ended when Alei got thrown from a horse and suffered a serious back injury. Lately, Moriah has gotten back into riding and this weekend we got to have some fun at the stables and watch her ride. Her favorite horse's name is Dan; he is a sweetie.
The kids all got a little time to learn about horses and pet Dan.
The weather was chilly but bearable and I love to let them run their energy out whenever possible.
We were a bit cold down by the water, but the view is gorgeous. Aunt Deb and Alyssa were at a youth retreat this weekend, but we had some nice moments with our oldest two daughters.
