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.

Homecoming Sunday

We were blessed to be invited to speak at a church yesterday on adoption. Since we don't attend a church with a choir, my little guys had never seen a choir wearing robes. As they filed in and sat down, Elijah leaned over and whispered, "do they have any clothes on under those robes?" Our initial speaking was a 10 minute teaser for an afternoon homecoming service; when I sat back down from speaking, Elijah leaned over again and commented, "you didn't even sing." Since I never sing, I'm not sure why he was disappointed.

Of course I didn't take any pictures of us talking, but I did snap this one of the girls on our way home when we stopped at WalMart to pick up some cilantro. (JD and the boys were at Lowe's next door.)
