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.

Late Easter

I'm disappointed that I didn't take Easter pictures of the kids in their Easter finery, but here we are back at home and in our casual clothes -


We hid Easter baskets inside and the eggs outside. I give them a number to find and they quit when they have that many. It keeps the "I'll beat you to the candy" mentality in check a bit.


Moriah's boyfriend, Chris, provided some egg hunting counsel.

Selah is always super enthusiastic about the festivities.

Deb stayed home from church sick, but got up for dinner. Thankfully she felt much better the next day when she and Joel needed to leave for Chicago.

Here's an example of when we tell people to look and smile -

Here's an example of when we don't warn people that we are going to take a picture. (If this disappears, you will know Moriah read the blog!)

Next blog post will be retaining walls - what can be more exciting than walls? So, be sure to check back soon!
