Older Orphans

Here are the pictures of the older orphans who live with Kingsley.

I love, love, love Ebenezer, Patience, and Dorothy. I was able to spend some time with them and they are just the best kids ever! They are so helpful and so kind. Actually, it seems that all the children are helpful and kind. I guess my favoritism leans simply to those I spent the most time with. Typical.

Anyway, if we were old enough (Ghana law requires that adoptive parents must be 20 years older than the child they are adopting) Ebenezer would top my list. He was so awesome with the other children - he always took Ajua away to play when we were leaving so she wouldn't be too upset. And boy does he love soccer!

Sandra, 11 years
Dorothy, 8 years

Mary, 10 years

Elizabeth, 13 years
Ebenezer, 14 years
Enoch, 15 years
Edward, 12 years
Patience, 11 years

When I was there in April, I told Ebenezer I would bring him some soccer cleats if I ever came back...looks like he'll be getting some new duds!

What about Evans? Did you spend any time with him? He was one of the kids that really caught my attention when we were there - a real sweetheart, but a little bit of a troublemaker.

Oh my ... we're old enough, but I don't know if we're ready to bring any more kids into the house. :)
