VERY Exciting News

I had just received the text. In reading it you could hear the excitement in her voice--she was thrilled but it was the actual phone call with the squeal of delight
"I am going to Africa" she said,
more than once as to let the realness of that statement sink in. Only a week ago it was an idea, a thought, and now it has become a reality. She is so excited--and so am I--excited for her to have this life changing opportunity--to see the world--to experience another country and culture, but I wouldn't be honest if i didn't say I am letting my first born go with some sadness and fear and trepidation in my heart. She is going more than half way around the world without me....she is leaving the nest and flying far far away---it's only for a month but still.... We have a passport to get, money to raise and shots to be had in just a short time. I think these next few months are going to fly by......

If you want to read more about the organization that she is going with or even donate some money for her adventure check out this site--she leaves June 13......and then the adventure will really start
