Celebrating His Life

Yesterday, we celebrated Kofi's 7th birthday.

His wish was to go to Build A Bear and here he is with his creation.

He has had the most awesome transformation over the last 6 months. The little boy who was too scared to let us take care of him, who would sleep with a coin in his pocket and food hidden under his pillow is now starting to enjoy the life that is with a Mommy and a Daddy. 

Daily, he melts my heart. In so many ways he "gets" what he has gained and lost in adoption. He tells me things like "thank you for saying YES Mommy" and plans ways to help his village as he gets older. He has not forgotten those who still struggle and he reminds us daily how materially blessed we are in America.

Kofi, I pray that in time you realize the blessing you are to us. I am so proud to be your Mommy.
