So here we are… exactly 4 weeks before we are leaving on a jet plane to Romania! “What’s left to do?” you may wonder. “How are you doing?” many have asked. Several of you have offered to help.

Our histories span between south Texas to Arkansas, from Kansas around the world and back to Kansas again. Our story began in Missouri and has continued these past several years in Kansas.
