Growing Up

An old friend of mine recently asked if I could write a post for her about the work we do in Peru. She is part of an organization working with orphans in Swaziland, called HopeAlive268. This Sunday, November 8th, is Orphan Sunday. Each day in the week leading up to Orphan Sunday, HopeAlive268 publishes a blog post that covers a different angle of orphan care, with the goal of raising awareness and expose other ministries that are caring for vulnerable children. My piece was posted today, so I will put a link below if you would like to take a look at it and the other posts from the week! Here is the beginning to get you started...

I will never forget the day my parents dropped me off for college. My college was halfway across the country from my hometown, so my parents didn't walk me into my dorm room, but instead left me at the airport. I don't remember many of the details of what I did on that first day on my own. But I remember clear as day the strange feeling that I had as I watched my parents drive away.

I was completely on my own. Totally free. I could do whatever I wanted! Anything! That was thrilling. But I was also alone. I knew no one. I would have to make all my own decisions...
