Emmanuel Free Methodist Church, Janesville, in June welcomed the Rev. Scott Whiting as its new pastor.

Whiting and his wife, Lori, along with their nine adopted children, moved to Janesville from Eau Claire.

After ten years of unexplained infertility, Scott and Lori decided to fulfill an idea they had while Scott was attending seminary-adoption. The couple adopted a sibling group of three from northern Siberia and an infant from Oklahoma.

They flipped real estate to pay for another trip to Russia in order to bring another sibling group home to Chicago. Upon their return, they were asked by a church family to adopt a niece and nephew from Rockford, Illinois. And when they received word about a troubled adoption in Michigan, they also agreed to take on another 5-year-old, Russian-born boy.
