The Day We Visited His Birth City

From the moment we found out we were required to make a 4-hour van ride to Kaison's birth city to apply for his passport, we dreaded it.  After all, 8 hours in a van... but it turned out to be a really amazing day!

We left the hotel just before 9, and somebody was ready for a nap.

We had an early start to the day.  Little man clinging to his Baba, and his Baba clinging to the Word of his Heavenly Father.

Then little man came alive.  He played and played.

He took selfies.

Once we entered the city, we discovered the police station where we would apply for the passport was closed for a 2.5 hour lunch break.

So we enjoyed our own lunch.

We finally took care of the passport business and had a photo opp with the orphanage staffer.

A 4-hour return trip, and we were ready to call it a day.  Except somebody needed a bath.  It wasn't exactly what he had in mind, but once in the tub he was completely on board!  We changed his clothes and scrubbed him up all in one evening.

By far, the best thing that happened today was this!!!
At lunchtime little mister was his joyful self.  We see a little more of him each day!

Even though we had a crazy intense 7 hour ride each way, the absolute best part of picking up our kids in Ghana was the trip to their home and village.

Love, Hugs, and Prayers!
