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.

Pensacola Lighthouse

Yesterday we also visited the Pensacola lighthouse; Elijah was very excited to climb it. Upon arrival, we found out it was an open staircase all the way up (Alayna and I stayed on the ground due to our dislike of heights), you were not allowed to wear open back shoes (crazy Alyssa climbed in with bare feet), and Elijah was just short of the height requirement. They let him climb as long as it was agreed that he couldn't be carried at any point. There was no one word of complaint from the little guy!

It was a good, good day!

  1. I had to laugh upon seeing this. One year, we took turns changing clothes in the SUV, so we could swim and play on the beach. I was so afraid someone would drive up and see us. It is not easy for a large woman to put on a swimsuit in the back of an SUV.
