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.

Things to Come

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, 
but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
Fredrick Keoniq

I am planning a "more people, less stuff" campaign for next year. I am frustrated at the volume of stuff we own ( I normally go through this about twice a year,it's just hitting earlier than usual.) In 2012, we are really going to decrease our junk to make room for the new little person (or people) and the benefit is the stuff we can sell on Craigslist can be added to our adoption fund. Stay tuned.
