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.

Never a Dull Minute
Thankfully this is the first week in four weeks that JD hasn't had to travel for work. It was good timing for him to be home, since Fed Ex gave us 10 minutes notice that they were delivering replacement solar panels for the ones that mysteriously burst on the roof. I don't think I blogged that day, but it rained down glass in the backyard like some kind of hideous plague.
JD rushed to get home, get gas for the tractor and install the fork lift; but by that time, the Fed Ex driver had attempted to pull off the edge of the little road next to us and was thoroughly stuck. Alyssa and I were supposed to head "to town" but we are patiently waiting while the driver and JD "unstick" the truck. So far, they have been working on it for close to an hour.
I'm wondering when "call a tow truck" will become the new plan.
This is at least the third time we have had trucks stuck delivering things to our remote address. JD successfully helped all the others, but this guy pulled into a virtual swamp even before all the snow we have gotten.
