This blog is dedicated to our sons: Sufi & Kofi. They were living in an orphanage in Ghana before we adopted them. This blog covers the process and obstacles overcome in order to adopt. It now follows the adventures of becoming a synchronized family unit and adventures we share along the way.
God has created so many miracles along the way; we know that more are in store for the family of four!
