Of course the best part of the trip was that everything lined up to get to spend a week at camp with Ruby, who I’ve been dying to hug for a year and 4 months now. I can’t believe it’s that long since I was there last, but the skype visits have helped it seem like not much time had passed between visits.
Then monday morning came. I was able take the 2 hour ride with the people that were picking the kids up from their home. When I got there and first saw Ruby we were both scrambling to get a hug. The bus ride back with her in my lap was awesome.
I was also blessed with another sweet kid in my family group, little Winnie. She is 6 years old, and has muscular dystrophy. She struggles just to speak or keep her head upright, but her sweet and hilarious personality came out quickly. My translator was amazing, a college student named Sherry. I'm so thankful God blessed me with someone who jumps in there and works, because it was a challenging week.
