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.

Selah's Birthday

We finally hosted a Selah birthday party today; it was a big deal to her as she has never had her own birthday party with friends, that wasn't shared with a sibling. We had James' 16th birthday party a month ago, and it was way colder than today was! The kids were outside playing and eating in short sleeves.

Here are a few shots - we served hot dogs and chili, so chili dogs were most people's choice.

Selah chose a chocolate cake with bright blue frosting.

She got all kinds of exciting gifts, which again was a first for her to receive presents from anyone other than mom and dad.

It was a special day for her and I am so, so thankful for the beautiful weather God blessed us with.

Happy 8th Birthday, Selah - we are thankful you are in our family!
