Welcome! As we step out in faith to adopt from Ghana, we started this blog as a way to share the story of our adoption journey with family and friends. Step by step on this journey we are learning to trust in and rely on God all the more.
If you would like to start reading about our journey from the beginning start with the January 1st post, "How it all Started".

Tonight I Am Heart Broken

(Hopefully it's okay to post his picture here)

After M & C returned from thier first trip to Ghana, they shared with us about a sweet 2 1/2 years old boy who had just arrived. I totally fell in love with him. When I first saw his face I said out loud, "Are you my son?" Even though I knew he was not meant to be ours.

Sampson, who's beautiful brown eyes drew everyone in, who touched the hearts of many, who almost had a forever family, died tonight.

What is comforting to know that his weak body is now strong, his sorrow is turned to joy, and he safely in the arms of his heavenly Father.

If you'd like to read about him you can do that here. Another post where you can also link to his adoptive family and a couple who were with him the day he died click here.

Please say a prayer for those closest to him. There are many who are grieving tonight. His adoptive family, the caregivers and children at the orphanage, and his birth father.
