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.

Dogs and Goats

 We have had 8 baby goats for almost 8 weeks now. They are all sold now, except for Edith that we are keeping. They will start leaving for their new homes next week. I have one goat left to birth sometime soon and two probably bred for the fall. Here's our goat momma and babies, and some dogs for good measure, in no particular order. 

Selah and Eeyore

 This is Alaska during the Easter egg hunt; he wasn't sure how he felt about the running and yelling. 

Alei has been dropping Lucca here for day care when she works. She recently bought him the blue ball because it is too big to roll under the furniture, but it's a big tougher to cram in his mouth alongside another ball.

Back to baby goats - 

Baby Estter

Ewok - 

Eeyore again 
 This is Eddie and Eclipse; they are sold to a lady to add to the little boys she bought from me last year. 

Little Eddie and Eclipse 

This is Montana and Alaska showing how we feel about spring, including the sneeze. 

Selah is the biggest animal lover in the family!

This year was year three of me replacing the front row of bushes in the flower beds across the front of the house. Alaska chews on them. This year, I constructed some upside down tomato cages around them and once I tack them down, I'm hoping he will leave them alone.

It hasn't slowed him down from napping in the mulch though.
