I can’t believe that this is where we are! I feel like it was yesterday that I was praying her into our home from Ghana. She was 9 years old at the time and all I could think was “we missed half her childhood.”
We’ve had 9 years of her here with us before she entered adulthood. Half of her childhood with her first mom, and half with me. Next summer, she’ll go back to Ghana and we’ll all stand on that hallowed ground together to launch her into adulthood.
We are so lucky to have her in our lives.
