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.

I finally got to talk to a real, live doctor at a major attachment center a few hours away today. They have only SIX international slots A YEAR - crazy, but the rest are reserved for foster-care adoptees. Anyway, after a while on the phone, the lady blessed me with the news that there is only one slot left open for THE YEAR, but she would take Julia's case to the board to be approved for it. Once we are approved, we go for a long day of evaluation, then begin weekly therapy closer to home.

It will be interesting to coordinate everything, but I really want to solve these issues we are having and move on to a healthier Julia.

Here's Julia on the phone telling my cousin about her hair getting done and the two fruit-snacks she received as a reward.

  1. May I ask where you are going? We got our son in at a therapist and really are not happy with how things are working out. God bless you and Julia with a "good" day! Sandra
