A sweet story form Kaylee...
After we told the kids about the adoption, Kaylee and I were driving to OKC to see Pappy. This is what she said: "Mom, it doesn't matter that my sibling will be brown. God loves us all the same." This statement from her is a sweet reminder that God is in charge. I know that we will have issues come up with our child being a different race than we are. However, God is in charge and will help lead us through these times. I know he will give us the right words to say!
Facts about Rwanda:
1. Kigali - the capital - is the city in Africa most frequently visited by American Christian Rock Bands and stadium-filling Evangelists coming to convert Rwandans to Christianity (despite the fact that almost everyone is Christian already).
2. Fried grasshopppers are a delicacy in Rwanda, but you have to keep the lid on the pan while you are frying them alive, or they tend to jump out.
3. 50% of the population of Rwanda is under 18.
4. Rwanda is well known for its Gorilla population - as popularised in the book and film Gorillas in the Mist.
