Wow! Yesterday was quite a day to celebrate!
Not only did we acquire the documents stating that we, in fact, are now Alethia’s legal guardians, but this happened on her birthday!We went into town to celebrate Alethia’s life at Ozzie’s, a local bakery in Jinja.The lady with the red apron is Jude, the owner. She’s got an incredible story. We’ve been told she has been in Uganda since the mid ’70s when the country was in turmoil.
After a pizza dinner (wow, we’ve had a LOT of pizza over the past two months!), we devoured the BEST chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream ever:)We’re praying we’ll have much more to celebrate at the end of this week! We’ll know more after we head to the Embassy first thing in the morning!
