Michael called me this morning to say he has arrived safely in Accra, Ghana. The weather is hot with the humidity at 100%. The hotel is located on the out skirt of the city of Accra. It took a 30 minute cab ride from the airport to the hotel and most of the way was dark with the exception of a few generator powered bulbs. He is now only two days away from meeting our son James. It is hard to believe our dream is so close to coming true.
Parker is doing awesome and is loving his holiday in Calgary. He is getting a lot of snuggles and love. Yesterday he got to meet his cousins Patrick (13) and Christine (12) along with Aunty Louise and Uncle Mario. With the help of Uncle Denis I removed his cast yesterday and we will go back on May 8th to the doctor to see if another case will be required. Parker is a few days away from being 3 months old and weighs 14 lbs.
We want to thank all of you for your endless support, encouragement and happiness for us. Your comments, emails, phone calls and visits mean a lot to both Michael and I.
Peace and love,
Joanne & Michael
