5 days. Only 5 days left of the most amazing, moving, heart-wrenching, beautiful, and fulfilling experience I have ever dreamed of. I was just a teenager when I dreamed up a plan to volunteer in an orphanage, one day. Now, many years later, it has come true and unfortunately, is coming to a close. A close of my time in Ghana, but most definitely not a close to my dream of living in the service of my fellow beings, vulnerable children, and people who need me. What I am coming to realize is that I needed these people much more than they needed me.
