Today my easy child leaves for Africa. She is going to Ghana for 5 weeks. I took today off work to spend some time with her and it's all I can think about! She's so methodical in her packing and planning. We all downloaded Skype and another international texting app, she made me copies of everything from her banking to her travel, visa, passport, addresses, etc. So efficient and calm. Yesterday I overheard her tell her boyfriend that she's kind of freaking out a little...she's so afraid she will forget a detail. Anyway, if you would, please send out a thought, prayer or positive juju for safe travel, experience and return home! This promises to be a life changing time in her life and I'm so glad she's doing it. By the time I was her age I had already given birth to her and as you know, motherhood has a way of putting some dreams on hold (not that I ever dreamed of going to Africa). I guess now that it's really happening, I'm a bit nervous, but mostly excited for her. I'm in awe of her drive and enthusiasm to help the children at the orphanage and make a difference in their lives. I know you lovelies in the board will come through, Thanks!
