While I fell in love with all of the children at Eugemot, there was one kid who particularly caught my eye. He was a little bit michevious (which told me he was smart) and very athletic. He wanted to be involved in everything and first in line to do whatever it was that we were doing. It also helped that he was totally cute.
My return home from Ghana that summer was bitter sweet. I will admit that I cherished that first hot shower and never again have I taken for granted the value of indoor toilets. But leaving those kids, and leaving that kid, left me with a void that I could not explain. I knew that I could do more, that I had more to give than I could possibly have manged to give in that 2 weeks time. As time went by I made the decision to attempt to adopt that boy who had won my heart back at Eugemot. To make a long story short, I returned to Ghana in July of 2007 to pick up my son, then 6 year old Daniel Bregon.
