One Year Ago, Part III
Our family got up, had breakfast as a family, made our beds, loaded our suitcases up in the van, left our home and road in our van as a family of 5 one last time. We headed to the airport to catch a flight to Ethiopia via Amsterdam to meet our son for the first time.
Leaving our home for the last time as a family of 5. "Here We Go!"

I love being a mom to my 4 beautiful children and wife to my wonderful husband. I don't write to draw attention to myself but to glorify God. What a blessing to have this opportunity to share my testimonies through this journey we call life.
"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people." --Martin Luther King JR., "Letter from Birmingham Jail"
"..and if you spend yourself in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." (Isaiah 58: 9 - 11)
