Has your child's birth country changed from Haiti to Africa now? By reading the Campbell's story, makes me want to go too!

I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Africa! More about the people and the need. I reread this and thought the same thing!

Melanie it's good to hear you'd like to adopt a child, visit Kenya, and run a marathon - but I gotta say my heart just smiled really big and even fluttered when I read "publish a book"! No pressure of course.
