That's Right - GHANA!

Ok. I know that post will cause a rush of comments and questions, so I better address them now. {I post-dated my post. Tech-y, huh?}

I flew to Ghana to file our I-600 with the US Embassy. Our hope-beyond-hope is that I will be able to return with Adjoa, but that will take a miracle.

So I'm counting on all of you to pray and pray hard.

Not meaning to be melodramatic or anything, but if she doesn't come home with me, I honestly don't know when she will be able to come home. She would be ready in a matter of days if it doesn't happen while I'm here, but that certainly doesn't mean we can afford another ticket - especially short notice, during the holiday season. {Not to mention that both Robert and I have completely exhausted the time-away-from-work our employers are willing to give.}

Of course, we have complete faith that God will provide a way, even if....

But I'm trying to stay positive. trusting, and hopeful. So let's just pray that it all works out and I can bring our daughter home.

I'll do my best to keep you updated while I'm here.

Anyway, big prayers and best of luck to us!

Oh, I do hope you will be able to bring her home with you! How wonderful that you are working so hard to get this fantastic dream to work.

I love you and miss you tons. I can’t believe how quite it is with just me and Eden. I miss your talking. It sucks when I do all the talking and Eden just sits there blankly wagging her tail.

Now, I know how you feel when you talk to me. You are just jabbering and I just say u-huh or yeah, or some other meaningless response.

I love you. Give Adjoa a hug for me and tell her I miss her.
