Sunday-we had a small party at E'mans orphanage, as he said good-bye to all of his friends and caregivers. We knew this was the right thing to do, but it's so hard to watch your son shut down. He simply, did not want to be there and after a few hours he was ready to go. We then went to the market, which is always an experience in Ghana. Lastly, we spent a little more time in the pool. We were constantly reminded this boy can eat more chicken and rice then humanly possible while making pooping a profession.
Monday- we started the day at school for children that have been rescued from all kinds of crazy things and/or orphaned. The neat part of this experience was we were there to pass the blessings. A group of girl’s scouts packed a suitcase full of supplies for the children. The kids were very excited and thankful for the gifts and cards the girls made. Peyton and Brooke Gober donated enough money to buy two big bag of rice. The majority of kids eat one meal day a day. These two 50 pound pages of rice will go a long way.
