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.

Baby Hudson

Announcing the exciting arrival of our 4th grandson - Hudson Christopher. He was born on Aug. 11 during the 11:00 hour and weighed 7'11". Moriah went through over 50 hours of labor before Hudson arrived by c-section! He had some struggles with his lungs and spent his first few days in the NICU where I wasn't allowed to even visit. We are all so happy he is home with his mommy and daddy and look forward to each time we stop to visit him. 

Here's the first time I took the kids to meet him and the obligatory picture of everyone holding him (and me talking while I'm holding....no doubt sharing valuable wisdom). 

Tori attempting the bottle - he was required to drink by bottle in the NICU but is now transitioning to breast feeding pretty well. 

You are so loved, Hudson!
