Just a few more days...and going going Ghana

We leave Portland on Friday to head out for Ghana.   Can't wait for Elise and Grandma Jean to meet Joyce.  I know Joyce will be disappointed not to see Brent, she was quite fond of her dad.    We have prayed for a child from Ghana since 2007 and she is finally coming home.  My mind is spinning and I am just trying to wrap up the last few details.  So far I am ahead of schedule.  Ghana here we come!!

We are coming to get you dear Joy very soon

We are coming to hold your hand

No more looking out the window wondering when we are coming

We won't forget about you wait just a little longer

Time is such a strange thing.  Some times days and weeks fly by and then time will stand still...To be in a new place with all new people.  I know we are supposed to be here, but it is hard to meet people.  We are trying to be patient and rest in the Fathers will.  We are just waiting to go get Joy and trying to get everything prepared.  We have the bunk-bed set up in Elise's room and all of Joy's clothes in half of her closet.  Elise got her last two shots the yellow-fever vaccination and meningitis. We have her malaria prevention and a z-pack in case of sickness.  My bag is all packed with warm weather clothes and Elise has 3 skirts for the trip.  Anyone that knows Elise knows that she is a jeans, t-shirt, and jacket girl, so this will be out of her comfort zone.  My mom is even working on her shots.  Grandma Jean said that she is going to Ghana.  We are going to Ghana soon......
