Believe it or not, it was my mother who reminded me recently that two years ago we left for Rwanda this day. I think THAT is worthy of a blog post!
So we are reading our blog from start to finish as a family- going thru it all again to remember the story, the search, the commitment, the struggle that was our paper pregnancy to Pacifique. And we are planning something special for this wee child- now 2.5 years old- who we met for the first time on the 16th, passed court with on the 19th and had forever with us on the 24th of June.
I've had Pacifique on my brain lately as two years later I learn to deepen my love and acceptance of him and as I fall back in love with his Mother Country, Rwanda. I've got every movie "Rwanda" in my Netflix queue, I'm starting a bibliography of Rwandan history and culture books, and yes... I'm dreaming of returning there. I don't know what is happening inside me, but something is brewing.
Perhaps what is brewing is simply our son, who likes us to call him Mugisha. Blessing.
