Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren are currently doing work in Uganda, Africa where they adopted their toddler daughter Willa Gray from a few years ago.

Thomas shared on Instagram, “Got to spend the last few days in Uganda serving alongside my amazing wife and an amazing Love One International team. This was my first time back after bringing Willa Gray home in 2017. It’s hard to put into words what this trip meant to me, but in short my heart is full, my life is changed and I’m so thankful to God for the opportunity to see happiness in a place of such simplicity.”

Thomas and his wife adopted Willa Gray in 2017. At the time he told People, “I don’t think anyone can fully prepare you for the journey of adopting someone, especially from a third-world country where there are so many different laws. Every day you wake up with a whole new set of challenges that you never even heard of.”

Next moth, Rhett takes his “Life Changes” tour to Australia, then Hawaii.
