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.

 You may remember way back that I sold the stuff in our back room to make room for a dojo, so that James and Elijah could continue with their local instructor that did not have a space to rent in the county. She is currently running three classes downstairs on Thursdays, and I added Julia to the beginner class several months ago. 

Tonight was testing - Julia earned her white belt. 

 Elijah and James earned their first stripe on their yellow belt -

 It's been a great program for the kids. Next we are going to be hosting Tori and class Latin boot-camp upstairs in the school room at the same time as MMA meets downstairs. Tori said it was like living at Parks and Rec. (and she doesn't mean the TV show, she means our local one.)

Opening in prayer.
