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 Time

I have had no blog time the last few days. I have done one hair appointment and three doctor appointments, however. The hair appointment was a loc specialist in "town". I have been regretting the locs I put in Julia's hair because the upkeep hasn't been as simple as I hoped. I didn't know what to expect with the stylist that I booked for a consultation, but she was as sweet as can be and she is going to charge me by the hour and see how much untangling and tightening she is able to do. What made me feel good is that she told me that Julia's locs are the best she has ever seen from a novice hairstylist
. She also told me that the going rate for sister locs like her's is $1500. (You read that right, I didn't add an extra zero!)

My doctor appointments were unplanned - two cases of bronchitis and a bad Bella hand burn from a hair straightener. it was my week off from the hike to Richmond, but I'm never free from doctors.

We are joining a new home group from church tonight that focuses on time and stress from a Biblical perspective...it could be just what he doctor ordered for me.

Since I don't like picture less posts, I'm going to see what's on my phone that I can attach.


  1. What's up Dear, are you genuinely visiting this web site daily, if so afterward you will without doubt take good experience.

  2. When you posted a while back that it was a four hour project to tighten her locs, I reconsidered that locs. That's as much time as I spend detangling and untwisting Ana hair so it really would save anything. Hopefully, you find a workable solution.
