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 can't remember if I've announced in blog-land yet that Alei is going to Uganda. She is going with the church in Colorado that Gabriel is interning at. I'm really excited (and jealous) that she is getting the opportunity to visit Eastern Africa. Uganda is truly a land of needs that surpass the average American's understanding. Linny at "A Place Called Simplicity" is actually in Uganda right now with a team. Alei will be traveling with a team that Linny's husband is leading in June.

If you have a moment, get some kleenex and read Linny's blog post yesterday - http://aplacecalledsimplicity.blogspot.com/2011/04/one-tiny-treasure.html and then today - http://aplacecalledsimplicity.blogspot.com/2011/04/weeping.html

Lord, break our hearts for what breaks yours!
