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.

The Play Pictures

 Setting up the dinner before the play -

 Behind the scenes -

a few notes on the hand
My whole job was to keep my children quiet in the back two rooms after their scene and before bowing at the end. I resorted to putting a few under a table with a movie and ear-buds.

Hard to imagine that these two could have ended up in separate families if we hadn't been brave enough to do two adoptions at one time. Their bond is far closer than most siblings!

This is our friend, Sammy, from Ghana with the kids that played his family in the play.

It was a good experience for everyone, but we had two nights of the kids in bed later than midnight. They did very well considering.
