I dream of cornrows, and yarn braids, and snaps, and twists, and zulu knots. I dream of "clean sections" and comb-outs, and puffs, and piggy-back braids. I dream of my future daughter's African hair, in my hands, waiting for care.
Back in 2006 when we decided to begin the adoption process again, we were planning to adopt a baby girl and a toddler boy, from Liberia. Then we were planning to adopt a boy/girl sib set from Ghana. And as the Lord planned it, we ended up with one toddler boy. It's interesting to think that in the end we are going to end up with a boy and girl from Ghana after all. Our #4 will be 20 months younger than Bright. Anyway...
It is quite ironic that even though we are now paper chasing to finally bring home that baby girl she is pretty much bald!! Someday though....someday I will live my dream of cornrows, and yarn braids, and twists, and snaps, and zulu knots!
