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.

All Good Things Must Come to an End....

We hit two beaches today. The first had no waves, but had some interesting sea-life. Here's a live starfish that Ben found.

This was a dead jelly-fish; the interesting thing was that the little crab (see him?) was eating it. Gross, yet fascinating.

After lunch, we headed back to the "real" beach. We managed to stay quite a while and not let anyone get sun-burnt.

This whole week Elijah has said "beach, water, I drown." We always say, "you don't drown, you swim." So, now he says, "beach, water, not drown" while he shakes his head. He loved his first beach experience.

Elijah adores Alyssa. We often call her Lyssie and Elijah pronounces it Tyssie. Today he wanted Tyssie to hold his hands; she managed to in spite of sitting in the seat behind him.

We are heading to a Chinese buffet tonight, then packing to head back to our real lives.
