I heard back from our guy in Ghana and fortunately/unfortunately, the children he had mentioned have a father. The really good news is that this completely confirms our trust in this organization. He had been told that the father was deceased, but doing his due diligence, he found that this was not the case. Which means, they are not orphans and cannot be adopted. With international adoption, the child must be an orphan. No matter how much the parents would rather have their children adopted to give them a better life, if they are both living, the cannot choose adoption for their children as a couple can do here in the US. For this reason, many mothers will lie about the father being deceased in order to give their children what they believe is a better life.

Please keep these little ones and their parents in your prayers.
