Quick Gifty Update

[Gifty and her mom]

Today was the day! Gifty and her new mom boarded a plane and left Liberia! Thank you all so much for your prayers! She'll meet her new family sometime tomorrow...and I'm fairly certain that it will be love at first site! The thought of Gifty on her way home makes me excited (and thankful), but it also means that it's time to start praying for all things medical. The hurdles don't end with Gifty coming to America. She needs a new liver.

Gifty holds a special place in my heart. Today I realized that I missed her...I haven't seen her since I kissed her goodbye on Monday. When I think about her future, I know that she still has a long and difficult road ahead. But I also know that she is a fighter. I've thought about how special Gifty is, and how much joy she has brought into so many people's lives. She truly is a special girl, and I really believe that God has great things in store for her.

Gifty's story and journey has opened my eyes to the power of God's healing hand and I have seen the power of prayer. Gifty is a miracle.To God be the glory!

That is completely amazing!!! It makes me so happy for her. I know she will be missed in Liberia. I'll continue to keep her in my prayers.
