I have a number of things I’d like to write about and share, but various aspects of the adoption are in full force right now and I feel compelled to let people know what’s going on. Just so you know that I hope to keep other content coming, as well.
I never posted all our videos of Judah after returning from Uganda. Not all are great in quality or content, but some are gems. This one of singing time in Baby Room 2 is definitely worth watching. You might want to read the description below for a bit of context (I was taking the video). When the video first comes on, they’re singing:
Read your Bible, pray every day, pray every day, pray every day;
Read your Bible, pray every day, if you want to grow.
The second verse goes I will make you fishers of men…
At the end of each stanza, they raise their hands. Judah obviously enjoys this part because he does it all the time at various points in the song. But he usually clasps his hands over his head in a big fist-mallet instead of just putting them in the air roller-coaster style. But the best part is when they sing the next song:
Who made you and me, you and me, you and me?
Who made you and me? Our God above!
They proceed to name the kids in pairs, going from left to right and singing the names of kids who are seated next to each other. After Hannah & Tolo and Matthias & Brian, the staff starts singing “Who made Jeremy and Judah?” Judah pretty much turns into an absolute ham when he hears his name (1:50 – 2:15).
