No, I did not come home with a daughter after a total of nine weeks in country. BUT I feel my trip to Africa was not a waste in any way. While the outcome was not as we hoped, there was a reason I was there. We are not sure what God had planned, but know that He loves me and has what is best for me!
I had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people (including M. of course). I think the biggest blessing was to be able to form relationships, love and care for 14 very special children at HSH. J. and I miss them all!
