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.

USS Ronald Reagan

 Gabriel gave us a serious up close tour of the USS Ronald Reagan, which is one ship in the largest nuclear aircraft carrier class in the world. When deployed, there are 5,000 service members on board.

 The ship is 10 levels high.


Gabriel and JD were the only ones even able to close the exterior doors, although James, Ben and Alayna tried.

The boys all had a turn trying out Gabriel's rack. 

 This is just one view down a passageway. The ship is the length of three football fields.

Elijah is loving the time with his oldest brother and is so proud of him.

 The USS Ronald Reagan's view of San Diego. We looked at the price of houses with this view and they ranged from 6-14 million.
