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.

They Made It!

Gabriel, Alayna and Nathan made it across country - they took six days to drive from San Diego to Virginia. Thankfully, Alayna's dad drove their second car. They will be here for almost three weeks until Gabriel has to head to FL for school and Alayna goes to PA to visit family. We are hoping to meet up a few times during the next six months they are on the east coast before their move to Denver, CO.

Nathan did very well for having been a baby who didn't like his car seat.

They did a stop at the Grand Canyon -

They also stopped in Durango, CO to see friends, and Memphis to see my parents. Geema sent some pictures.

I really love these pictures - it would be four generations if I were in them!

My phone is full so I tasked Moriah with taking the arrival photos. She got some really cute ones that haven't come through my email in spite of her trying twice. I'm going to post a couple of Alei shots, but we are going to try for round two tomorrow with Moriah's.

Nathan and Aunt Alei
Nathan appreciates all the kids to play with.

He is also good with some quiet cookie time on the porch. We sure do love this little guy! More tomorrow - we are going on an adventure and Nathan is going to join us!
