 Courtney, Matt, Adam and I would like to thank EVERYONE of you who ordered a t-shirt, bought a bracelet, ordered a calendar, or have donated just because you felt led, and prayed with us and for us.  Thank you honestly cannot begin to describe how much we appreciate your help in helping us bring our children home. We still have a few extra t-shirts in both designs if anyone you know has commented on what a rocking t-shirt you are wearing (click here to see designs).  

And because I couldn't resist, here is Adam and I with the two precious girls from His Little Feet that stayed with us for 4 days in February.    

Tsion & Gracia- We love you both and miss your smiles, your laughs, your singing, the large amount of fruit that you eat, recording with Uncle Adam, fixing Auntie Khylee's hair, saving Tsion from the dogs and playing Just Dance! Big, big, big hugs!!!!!!
Give Auntie Brooke a big hug from us too!!!


It's Independence Day!


Today Ghana celebrates independence!
In honor of this day, I wanted to share with you some facts about Ghana.

Ghana Independence Day: 6th March 1957
 Ghana was the first black African country to gain independence on the 6th March 1957.  Dr Kwame Nkrumah was the first prime minister of Ghana and in his first speech said "Ghana, your beloved country is free forever"

Ghana is a beautiful country blessed with gold, diamonds, and many other minerals but what really makes Ghana special is its diverse and culturally warm atmosphere which touches and embraces everyone. Ghana is located in West Africa and is bordered on the north by Burkina Faso, on the west by Côte d’Ivoire, on the east by Togo and on the south by the Gulf of Guinea.  The capital of Ghana is Accra and is situated on the southern coast. Ghana was once a British colony and was formerly known as the Gold Coast.
