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.

Happy anniversary to me
JD stayed home from DC
Now we are going out to lunch
Without our whole bunch


  1. Congrats!! I hope you had a wonderful time alone.

  2. Happy Anniversary and I hope you had a great time out with just the two of you. We only have three kids and it's tough for us to get out so I can imagine how rarely you're alone together.
