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.

Goat Milk Soap

I made my second ever large batch of goat milk soap a few days ago. The first one was a success, so I decided to add essential oils to this batch - it happens to be peppermint. I find it rather challenging to keep the two pots at the correct temperature, but thankfully it seems to be slightly forgiving of spiking temperatures.

Elijah was appointed goat milk soap stamper; he did an outstanding job.

I like the rough cuts, possibly wrapped in a burlap bow for gift giving.

The soap sits for 24 hours in the mold, then is cut and stamped. After that it has to sit for 3-4 weeks before curing for use. My stacking cookie trays have become soap trays and they cure in the cool basement storage room.
