Ghana



A few weeks ago my dad asked if I would like to go to Ghana with him in February. He is going on assignment. My mom is his usual sidekick. She has offered to play with her "human toys" in trade for me to work with my dad. We will be working with a medical training group that will be teaching neonatal resuscitation classes to midwives. It is a chance of a lifetime opportunity for me to experience. The downside to the travel is that I will be leaving my dream man and our baby's home. 10 days is a long time to miss them!

Hi Kiera! Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry it's taken forever to respond. I've been extremely busy with christmas cards and all. Anyway, I use an Olympus E500 with a 45mm and a 150mm lens. Thanks again for the comment. I love your header picture!

Leaving your family is the hardest, especially for freakin 10 days but golly what an opportunity! I am anxious to hear about it when you get back. Good luck. I am sorry about the shots.

Wow!!! That is the chance of a lifetime! I hope to be able to do that someday. I want to go on a healthcare mission once my kids/husband are old enough to do without me for a while!! Good luck. Post pics! I'm envious of your blog. I'm a newbie! Jill
