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.

 So, the really good news is that we finally got word that Isabella's second blood test returned from Kenya; it is still inconclusive, but they are marking her file "to be determined in America." I really wish we could have just done that the first round because any test results were not going to keep us from bringing our little sweetie home. It looks good for traveling in the next few weeks. I'm racing the clock to be back to see Gabriel off when he leaves for Boot Camp on the 30th and I've lost hope for the family picture with the girls before he leaves! We'll have to plan that when he can visit sometime next year.

The other good news is that JD comes home at night now like a normal person, so we getting a few things done before we travel. The order of business after he fixed Gabriel and Alei's cars was to build the trampoline. 

                                     I have a lot of happy, jumping kids at the moment!
