My younger sister left for Ghana today where she will be helping at the orphanage we have come to love. Not only will she be a house mother to 40+ kids, she will be able to spend time with our future brother. We heard from a previous volunteer that “P” has been praying for a family for a long time and doesn’t think God will grant his request. The older boys often see families come for the younger children, so I can only imagine how that makes them feel when no one comes for them. He doesn’t know about his adoption just yet, but Meagan is bringing his family book and will be able to tell him sometime while she’s there. We all have been eager to share this with him to ease his mind and prove YES God has been listening!
Both my Mother and I are living vicariously through Meagan (especially since my Mom hasn’t gotten to meet “P” yet) so we have threatened her that she must update us all the time! I’m sure I will share some of her experiences on the blog.
After 18+ hours of flying time she will arrive in Ghana tomorrow afternoon. A wonderful missionary family The Beebes will be picking her up. I can imagine her now walking into the gates of GMI and the little kids running up to her “Mommy, Mommy!” like they did to us when we visited. She will absolutely love it there and we might have some trouble making her come home!
Still the waiting game on our adoption front. Every day I’m thinking there could be an I600 approval email in my inbox but it never comes. Hopefully it will come next week! Send some prayers our way!
