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.

Home School Success

Elijah (3 1/2) - Do we live in Australia?
Julia (5 1/2) - No, Elijah, we live in Alaska!

Well, at least they have heard of places other than Virginia, right? That's a success, right?



  1. oh this cracks me up!! :) Yes, I think the success is in that they know of those places! :)

  2. Do you have an I-pad?? Your kids would love "stack the states". I have 6, 7, and8 year olds who can identify states...even if they can't tell time;)
