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.

Fun Fact

Here's a fun fact about my life. I really think there have only been about 10 mornings over the last 18 1/2 years that I have taken a shower without someone yelling something at me through the door. The average is two people a shower; this morning I had three separate people yelling three separate times about a dead chicken. Once I made it out of the bathroom, dressed, I asked them, "what one earth do you think I'm going to do about the dead chicken while I'm in the shower - don't you think it could have waited while I finished my shower, (I mean where's a dead chicken going to get off to while I take a seven minute shower!) One of them said, "well, we just thought you'd want to know."

I'll miss these days when they all get big enough to go 10 minutes without talking to me - I'm sure I will.
