Precious Lives Up To Her Name

It is hard to put into words what it was like meeting Precious for the first time. When we arrived at the school, we were welcomed by a sea of smiling faces.

We looked around for Precious, but could not find her. Kingsley said that she would be coming soon. So we waited, and loved on the other children. Finally our little Precious was standing right in front of us. I'm sure she was very over whelmed by us.

We scooped her up and I don't think we put her down the entire time we were with her. She is such a beautiful girl. I'm sure you will all agree. I was really suprised to see her hair with yarn extensions. So cute!!! She seems healthy and happy. We had such a great time with her.
Here are just a few pictures of our little Precious.

She really enjoyed playing at the beach or as she would say "in the sea water".

Is she not the cutest little girl you have ever seen. I miss her, and can't wait until she is home!!

We love you Precious.

Wow! She is so cute!!! Thanks for the pictures of Steve.
I bet it was so hard to leave. I think Steve is ready to come home, but I think he will have a hard time saying good-bye to Lilly... aka Saviour. I'm so glad you were able to go to Ghana!
