I miss this crazy girl (and her family).
It’s hard to believe that it has already been a little over a week since leaving there; but I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to live with and get to know them.
It’s also hard to believe I have less than a week until training camp. Where has the time gone?
Seriously?! It feels like just the other day I was sharing with everyone that I was going to Puerto Rico.
At this point, I really don’t have any more information about what we will be doing there; I’m thinking training camp will give us a better idea of what to expect for the summer.
Sometimes it’s hard not knowing what this summer is really going to look like; sometimes I even start to question what I’m doing. But then I see pictures like this:
We lived in the orphanage where she lived; as we would be walking out to go somewhere, she would run out from where ever she was to give me a huge hug and kiss. One year ago, last May, that was almost every day for me; I miss that, I miss her.
As much as I miss Solimae and her joy and love, it makes me excited for this summer and the people I will meet in Puerto Rico, both the locals and the youth groups we will be helping.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me in some way; it really does mean a great deal to me.
