Last night, Amelia got a taste of her roots.
The amazing organization that started Amelia’s orphanage sent a Ugandan children’s choir to tour the U.S. This organization works very specifically in the exact area that Amelia is from. We even met some people at the concert who remembered Amelia from her orphanage! The 50 minute drive to the church where they performed was more than worth the trip!
When the first Ugandan child took a microphone and I heard that familiar, beautiful accent, my heart almost burst in praise. Oh thank You God, for the Ugandan people. Thank you for the incredible diversity you created in people, in accents, in music, in dance. Thank You for cultures coming together to praise You. Thank you for the precious Ugandan treasure sitting in my lap, who is beginning to love me, and know me as “Mama,” and thrive in the home You gave to her.
