To the Lovely People of Hanley Wood...
To everyone at my dad’s work, I would like to thank you for your kind words in my care package! It means so much to me that you all read my blog and keep up with what I am doing when I am so far away. It is so very easy to feel all alone here in a city where I am the only American. You watch life go by in the states without you and sometimes it pierces your shield and makes you re-think your decision to leave your former life behind. It’s easy to feel forgotten, but when I receive notes from home letting me know that people read my blog and care about what I am doing, it re-ignites my passion to make a difference in the world and strengthens the armor I must wear in order to live here day after day for two years. So thank you so much for thinking about me and sending me your salutations!!! I hope that I can continue to make my father proud and write stories that hold your interests.
On another note, I would like to thank whoever my dad stole fruit snacks from! The cheap bastard =)
Thanks daddy, I love you and miss you! P.S all the other volunteers were jelous of my dinosaurs!
