I am so proud of her that I can barely stand it.
I am so scared for her that I can barely stand it.
She will be living with a host family and be completely immersed in the culture.
She will be treated like a local - not a tourist.
It is possible that she won't have electricity or running water.
It is likely that she will take bucket baths and have to hand wash all of her clothes.
It surreal to watch my baby take malaria pills and preplan for her life off the grid.

She found out about this program on her own and made it a priority for herself.
She did not have to be persuaded to make it to the meetings.
In fact, it was the other way around.
She worked many many hours earning a good amount of her trip money on her own.
Our amazing family and friends were so kind and showed her so much love with their kind words and support with their very generous donations to her travel expenses.

Godspeed my sweet Ella Bella, Godspeed.
