We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

African Cultural Event

Today we attended a fundraising event at Regis University in Denver for the Catholic organization "Team Africa". All proceeds will go towards community peace building in Uganda. It was a nice event for several reasons. One it was for a good cause and second I think it is important to teach and expose both of our children to the cultures of various African countries. Several countries were represented, including Rwanda, and they had a excellent performance group demonstrating traditional dance common to West African countries. Tensae was shy at first then made me join in a group dance while dad and brother watched in amusement.
And a added bonus when we left the building we saw two patches of pansies that were still intact and full of color! I just cannot tell you how much I love Colorado winters!
