Guess Where I'm Going????

I'll give you 3 guesses and the first 2 don't count.

If your guess was GHANA, you win!!

Our adoption is finally done!! Kingsley has our decree in his hand!!!!
It still seems too good to be true. But we have a daughter waiting for us in Ghana.

I will be leaving on Sunday morning. I can't wait to get my arms around our sweet little Precious. I can't express how much I appreciate Kingsley, he has worked so hard to get this adoption done. At times it seemed it would never happen, but Heavenly Father had a plan. The first time I looked at this picture of Precious, I knew she was ours.
It has been 8 months, an emotional roller coaster ride with highs and lows. But I always knew it would happen, and she would be part of our family. As Kingleys always says, God is good. He is very good.

Can I get a WHOO HOOO!?! I am honestly as excited for you as I am for us! This has been such a long road for your family. The end is near. In fact, it's here!!!!
I wish we were hopping that flight right along side of you, but we need news of a passport first. Not complaining, because I know that it all happens in God's time, and so far, He has been remarkably quick for us. We'll hope He holds the same pace.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

So happy for you!!! She's such a doll. I hope the I600 and visa process go very quickly for you so she can set foot on American soil! She is going to love it here.

BIG FAT happy tears here. This news has been a long time coming, and Sunday will be here before you know it.

I watch those videos all of the time, and the one where they are giggling about being "Two Preciouses" is so cute. I hope we can reunite them soon on this side of the ocean!

We'll be praying for the rest of your journey to be smooth and quick.
