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.

Hanging up my Paint Apron

I'm finally finished with my painting - for a while anyway. I am saving the master bedroom, retreat and bathroom for next winter and I'm planning on painting the mud-room and mud-bathroom when we move the washer and dryer downstairs to the unfinished laundry room. So, for now it feels good and it wasn't as tough with the kids as I suspected it would be.

I painted the downstairs part of the stairwell today. The upstairs is "sage white" and the basement is "map paper." Now we have to figure out what to do with the actual stairs, they are still quite unfinished.

There are 13 children at my house tonight, what do you make for dinner with 13 kids?
