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 Grown Up

We are at the very end of Gabriel's time at home. In fact, he is currently on his way to Richmond to screen for the Navy. If he commits, it's on a delayed entry program until this time next year, which allows him to have this year in Colorado. The advantage of signing now would be that he should get exactly what he wants - the intelligence field. He has long term sights of NCIS or the FBI. He will be home from Richmond tomorrow night and then leaves for CO on Friday morning.

I snapped a few new pictures of him yesterday.

Julia showed up during our shoot; I love Gabriel's look in this picture.

Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord. - Psalm 31:24
