Steve is in Ghana

Steve left Sunday morning for Ghana. I just spoke with him. He said that Saviour is beautiful and a good little girl. He met her aunt and uncle. I guess her uncle works at the school. Saviour was a bit jealous when she saw a pair of shoes in Steve's suitcase that another family had sent for their daughter. I guess she wanted a pair of shoes too. She fell asleep in Steve's lap tonight. (I am so jealous, but happy she is with her daddy!!!)

It's probably good Steve and I are travelling separately. Last night, we were driving to Steve's parents' house for Sunday dinner and I looked in the rear view mirror at Madison. She had such a sad look on her face. I asked her what was wrong, then the flood gates opened. She started crying and said, "I just miss daddy!" To this Sierra replied, "I like it when dad is gone." So after only 12 hours away from us, the kids had mixed emotions. I don't think they would do well with both of us away.

There is a little boy named Kobi who is 15 to 18 months old. I have been thinking that maybe he is supposed to join our family as well. We decided not to make a decision about another child until we have both been to Luckyhill and met the children there. So, I asked Steve if he had met Kobi yet. He said yes but that he hasn't been able to hold him. He calls Vida (an 11 year old girl there) "mom" and follows her around. Here is a picture of Kobi and Vida.

I am so excited for your family! I think you are way more adventurous than we are. Kobi is adorable! That's funny that your girls are having such different reactions to Dad being gone! Good luck with all of your travels, etc. I don't need to tell you this, but pray about it and you'll know if Kobi is supposed to join your family! Love to all!

I am so excited for your entire family! Savior is going to be a great addition to your already wonderful family. Can't wait to meet my newest cousin!

Wow! So much is going on. I am so impressed with all that you are doing. I don't have any shoes, but I wish I did. Is there anything else maybe they may want? Let me know. I am so excited for you!
