It amazes me that this will be my fourth trip to Kenya in 18 months. That’s insane to me. How could a stay at home Mom with six kids between the ages of 14 and 3 be heading BACK to Kenya?
Well, we can start that answer with… a great husband, a friend, and a true partner. I am so blessed to be married and in love with a man who wants me to be fulfilled and happy. The second is the support I get from all my friends and family; those who help with my kids, feeding, loving, driving them to school, to those who donate money for school fees, pens, pencils, and of course UNDERWEAR!
I am truly grateful for all of this. I am a stay at home Mom who is finding her place in the world, and hoping and working towards making it better. I am humbled by the love and support to be able to fulfill this passion. Thank you all so very much.
So, I am leaving tonight. The eight days that I will be on the ground will be filled with meetings, looking for land to build Inspire the Child on, and of course, visiting the girls at Saint Monica’s. I can’t wait to see them. They have no idea I am coming, and it will be such a wonderful surprise!! I will also be refilling their requirements to go back for their second term at school. I am so grateful to my friends Angela, Tiffany, Tracy, Dawn, Jane and Sarah, who donated sanitary pads, soap, pens, pencils, sports bras and toothpaste. It’s all coming with me to pass out next week!!
And we cannot forget about the UNDERWEAR!! Exactly 2000 pairs have been packed and will be distributed to three IDP camps totaling over 20,000 people. I wish we had more. I know one day we will.
You can follow our journey by heading over to Twitter and reading the daily updates from Kenya!
Thank you all so very much. Thank you for the love, well wishes, and support. I’ll see you soon!
