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.

Hiking the Mountain

Since we had Elijah in tow, we drove most of the way up the mountain on a logger road. (Man, I'm glad as my neck wouldn't have taken the walk.) Here's the middle ground, after we parked but before we climbed.

We stuffed Elijah in the Ergo on JD's back, but he didn't appreciate the confinement, so JD ended up carrying him up the mountain. There is no way I could have done it!

Then he lugged him down the mountain. At the end, Elijah fell asleep.

All weekends must come to an end, but I am all for heading back next year. Maybe Elijah will be big enough to stay with his Aunt Deb and the other kids.
Here's a barn next to the property that was quite picturesque.

And lastly, here's a shot taken by a stranger at a scenic over-look on our way back home.

Good-bye mountains, see you next year.
