all my children

Yesterday we took the plunge and attempted to get a good group picture of all 42 of our children!

And you think YOUR family photos are challenging....

it takes a whole team to get ours!

Other than dear Twin Girl E screaming her head off (surprising to no one who knows her apart from the adorable pictures)....

...and realizing right after the kids dispersed that little girl A (CDA II) was around back playing, oops....

it was possibly our most painless large group photo yet!

Thanks in large part to Rick Alseth's entertaining shanigans. Should've gotten a picture of that!

Aren't they cute?

Don't miss new baby F in S's arms.

Can't believe they are all "mine"!!!

Gotta love the dark circles...yes, I'm exhausted.

Afterwards we all celebrated B's 2nd birthday!!

His differing abilities...or what do they say these days?...cause him to be at the bottom of the stack to be assigned adoptive parents, but we still hold out hope that he WILL one day have the joy of being someone's beloved son!

Till then...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Benito!!

We're so glad you're ours!

Looks like so much fun.

And LOVE that my little girl screamed her head off the whole time...tell her I love her!

I LOVE this post! Makes me want to hop on a plane and come love on those kids.

They all look soooo precious. And yet... That's a LOT of kids to take care of! I'm praying for you and the staff. That you may be able to bless and influence these kids as only the LORD can do, through you.

Hi Jennifer: I read your post and thought that your children are not aloud to be adopted...that Bolivia does not do adoptions? Is that true or am I just reading this wrong?

Oh no! Identification crisis! I managed to tell who everyone was expect for one! Who is the baby on the right at the front, in between House III V and A? Is that baby F? (That would explain why I don't recognise him.)
