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.

Elijah and Selah

Elijah went tearing through the living room, as he often does, crashing into the bannister and slightly hurting himself. I told him, "that's your fault because you are running like I've told you not to." He replied, "it's really Adam and Eve's fault - if they hadn't sinned, I wouldn't have been running like that!"

Since I didn't get a picture of Elijah running (if I had, it would have been blurry), I'll just show Selah when she arrived home from school just in time to clean the cookie dough bowl. Cookie bowl cleaning is a coveted position at our house.

JD and I headed north to "The Story" concert tour featuring Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns, Selah, Natalie Grant and more two days ago. It was really good and I'd highly recommend it if it comes near you.
