Ghana native adopts African American children
...
When Yeboah isn’t neck-deep in working with kids in North Minneapolis or a West African village, she is raising five children of her own at home. Three of the children are African American, whom Yeboah adopted after they fell into dire circumstances in a broken home. In 2002, Yeboah moved the entire family to Ghana where they lived in a village for nearly a year and half.

“They were having so many problems in school. They had behavior issues and problems focusing on anything. They were always restless and jumping around,” she recalls.

“I wanted to educate them in the culture and it worked. They had been taking Ritalin. I weaned them off of that. They adapted to the weather and the food, to the culture and the people.”

All of Yeboah’s children speak Ghanaian languages fluently, and, even in their mannerisms, show a mix of both African and American cultures. “It was a revelation. African American children can go back to the land of their ancestors and learn something and make a change for the better,” she says.
...

Not in leagues with Madonna but she took time out her PROFESSIONAL PURSUITS to tackle a GROWING COMMUNITY PROBLEM.

Who would have known an KIND AFRICAN would be concerned with the MATTER of AFRICAN-AMERICAN children from BROKEN HOMES.
 
Wow! How wonderful of Yehboah!
This is just beautiful!

Hmmmmm! You're probably right Sister Destee. I thought I read some where dustyelbow was a Sister. I've searched through most of the post to find out if I am wrong, but couldn't find nothing. It wasn't a thorough such though.

I apologize if I am wrong.:zipit:
