They Are Here!
Oh, how I LOVE THEM! They don’t come any sweeter than this bunch you see right here. This beautiful family is LOVE and KINDNESS to the greatest measure. This picture is pure evidence that God hears our cries and answers our prayers. In just talking with Esi for one evening, I am reminded that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).
I must tell you that behind the blogging scenes, God has showed up for Samuel. There are things I will not blog about in order to protect the privacy of our adoption. But I MUST SHOUT from the rooftops that God has showed up and defended and helped him. Questions are being answered. No, Samuel is not home yet. No, Samuel does not have his visa yet. But God is showing up. And I am so thankful for this family. More than words can say.
More blogging to come next week on our adventures with our Ghanaian family….for now I am enjoying story after story about Samuel, looking forward to my second round of Ghanaian cooking lessons, and thanking God for teaching me to step out of my comfort zone. Life’s richer out here.
