The kids love their new blankets made by their Grandma Watson. They are also wearing the new PJ's that Grandma and Grandpa Watson bought for them
So today we went to the orphanage. It was a really long drive because the traffic is so bad here. It's not like US traffic. There are miles and miles of cars and everyone is going as fast as possible then stopping at the last second before crashing into another car. There are big trucks, taxis, vans, buses, all speeding, cutting, and honking. Always honking! Then in the middle of the road there are many street vendors selling stuff. They all walk right out into traffic.
Anyways, the kids are great. They are very happy and did not want to go to the orphanage today and definitely did not want to stay there. They all watch me closely asking "where are you going mom?" and they love daddy. They have great personalities. Comfort is so funny. Last night after her bath (which is really a shower, there first time using one-usually bath is done in a small tub just scrubbing and rinsing) she threw her head back and put her hands on her hips and said "I am going to America!" and strutted out of the room then busted out laughing. She is quite a character.
Brian sings all the time. Almost always songs about Jesus. He also prays and told us he prayed for us to come soon. He is a great boy. Really has bonded with his daddy and today he wanted me to snuggle him.
Josephine is not as quiet as she looked in the videos! She is very happy and a good girl. She has had some hard moments dealing with the feelings of having a mom again, but she has been very open about missing her mother and we have talked about it and cried together which seemed to be a bonding point for us.
We are praying that we will not have to leave our beautiful children behind and go back without them. Everything is so slow in Ghana. Nobody moves fast and it's always "yes I will do that tomorrow'. I guess tomorrow never comes.
Mark has been sick since we arrived with fatigue and chills. We're not sure what is wrong, but he was feeling a little better today. That has been really hard and we would love your prayers for that.
We are very happy with our kids and want to get them home soon!
