Thousands of miles traveled and our lives are changed forever. The heart of Rwanda is permanently imprinted on our hearts. It is hard to express how a people who have suffered unfathomable loss and struggle with crushing poverty can be some of the happiest, warm-hearted people I have ever met. Their kind spirit is intoxicating.
We are home in the USA now, but know that part of our hearts will forever remain in Rwanda. The experience that we have shared as mother and son has been fabulous. I am so incredibly proud of Darren for his flexibility and open heart. He has shown me that love is boundless and can create connections that enhance our lives in ways that we could never have imagined.
A kind word, a hand on a shoulder, a smile, a hug, seems like a small gesture but if we stop and really press our hearts into those gestures we connect and show people that they are cared about. We know we will be going back to Rwanda, we have many loving friends now that we must visit.
Thank you for following our journey – it has been a ride that we are so happy to share. Until next time…
Darren and Suzy
