My grandpa stood with the veterans.
A good time was had by all and we will miss them when they go home.
When we got in the car, she held her book (now called her Africa Book.) This is the book I made her about us. She had it for several months while in the orphanage. It was her only possession, and she was very attached to it. She still is.After picking her up from the orphanage, we went with some other adoptive families to the beach. It was so beautiful.
After finally getting on the airplane in Liberia (a long story for another day) and landing in Ghana, we were able to find our luggage and change our clothes.
After arriving home we went to Fish Lake for the annual trip. I just love this picture of her.
We plan to return to Liberia someday. I know that it will be important for Jessica to go back. I am trying to find some ways to stay involved in humanitarian efforts there. (It's really tough to find an agency that is trustworthy.) I also have the goal to make Jessica's lifebook this summer. (Like a scrapbook, but about her adoption.)
Mike's grandparents owned a membership to Camperworld. He grew up going there with them. Now his parents own the membership, so we use it a few times every year. We co-own a pop-up trailer with Sean and Julie. Having the trailer makes it really comfy camping.
