It's not just us

Since my last 2 blog posts about the struggles our kids are having in Honduras, I have heard from several missionary families who are dealing with the exact same thing.  Their kids are lonely, scared, frustrated, and feeling a little far down the list of priorities.  Let's work together!  Anyone interested in helping create or be a part of a group for missionary and expat families, please contact me.  If our kids could be connected with other kids like them, who understand the struggles of trying to live in another culture, it would go a long way to making life more enjoyable.  Same for us parents, having other people to vent with that really understand what you're dealing with, would be a huge help. 

Send me your thoughts and ideas.  Or just send me a message about what you are going through and we'll chat.  We were not sent out to be alone in this!

I think your title is very important: It's not just us. When we are isolated, we can believe it's just us having these problems of adjustment to a foreign culture. Glad you are becoming aware of this, and starting to look ahead.
