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.

Tori's Color Lessons

In our unit studies on geography, we have moved on to Africa. I pulled out a book on Liberia that I had bought a few years ago and never read. It is a children's story called, Will You Carry Me? Ben is familiar with the African way of carrying items balanced on people's heads, but this was news to Tori. She impressed us with her ability of carrying a book balanced on her head.

Then she moved on to two -

Three didn't work as well, but Alyssa joined her in the attempt at this point. Tori looked at Alyssa and exclaimed, "Alyssa, I didn't know peach people could do this too!"

Color Lesson #2:
I picked Tori up from her class at church on Wednesday night. When I asked her what she learned, she told me she learned about the Red Sea. She said the most interesting thing is that the Red Sea isn't red, it's blue; red is just it's name.
