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.

Big News - Nathan has arrived!

Announcing the arrival of our very sweet first grand-son - Nathan Gabriel!

 He was born in San Diego yesterday - February 18th.

He weighed 8'14" and is 21.5" long.

Mom, Dad and Nathan are all doing well after a long labor and an unanticipated c-section. We are so thankful that he and Alayna are healthy!
