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.

No More Room

Take a moment to read this post from the missionaries that we support in Guatemala. They are a family with nine children who moved to work full time in the orphanage that two of their daughters were adopted from. It's so horrible that Guatemala shut down adoptions - I wish I could take this sibling group. I have far more room than the orphanage.

  1. I have been trying to get people to understand to quit buying stuff that they really don't need, kids they over whelm with stuff all the time, its not special to them anymore. Stop fast food eating out all the time, make it for a special time.
    Take that money that you put aside from all that savings of not buying that stuff,etc. and it will add up so fast.
    Help others that are in dire need, there are so many hungry people, so many need roof over their head.
    Here where I live the seniors are starving, they have volunteers that bring in one meal per day as they can't afford to go and buy any food at all to eat, they depend on others.

    So, many depend on others to provide for all their needs.

    Eating dirt, wow, that is terribly sad that they were found doing that.

    I can imagine what the kids in our countries take for granted so many of them that these kids their eyes huge at the thought of any kind of home with a roof over their head and clothes of their very own and shoes on their feet. And beds to sleep in with clean blankets to cover themselves each night. Food on the table to eat and not go hungry as they did before eating dirt.

    We need to show and teach and get the kids in this generation to care for others, really deeply care for them and not themselves, get away from the me generation and do what they can to help others
