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.

Little Kids, Big Kids

Today's post is a perfect example of what I said yesterday about the little guys getting all the pictures. While I went out to take pictures of the big kids, Julia and Elijah accompanied me; I can barely even go to the bathroom without them!

Anyway, the camera eventually was turned on them, because they are just so entertaining.

When Elijah saw the puddle, he ran straight to it, into it and started stomping and splashing.

He got down on his knees at one point like he was going to swim in it, but I decided it was too cold to get soaked.

So, another boy/girl difference - look how Julia remains on the side with dry shoes while Elijah stands in the puddle.

No one could ever convince me that boys and girls are born the same; Elijah ignores all the girly stuff and focuses on balls, tractors and dirt.

  1. So true about boys and girls!! Not that I know much about the girl stuff, since I have no daughters...but I sure know about the boy genes! :)
