I just finished watching the video you guys made for me.

The whole day has been crying, hugging, smiling and crying again.

And then Tiago starts kicking me and I grab my belly and tell him,”Hey son! These¬†are the good tears. These are the tears that come when your heart is full, when you are grateful. I am sure you are going to have them one day, these tears are a reminder of how good life is.”

I jumped into Daraja without knowing what I was getting myself into. I landed at the centre of hugs, understanding and desire. I discovered passion and willingness all over again through the Daraja girls.

But to be honest, this has been an experience that didn’t end with that first trip.

All of you have kept it alive, with your determination, positive attitude and resilience. I cant think of a better group of people to have shared this experience with. I admire each and every one of you!

And once Tiago is here I will tell him all about Daraja and the students who made it possible so that he knows what is worth crying for…

With all my love, always
