A 35 minute DVD documentary of the Cohen family's journey from Vermont to Ethiopia to be united with their daughter Meskerem who was orphaned by HIV/AIDS and is leaving all that is familiar to her -- her extended family, her culture, her language -- to begin a new life in America wrapped in the arms of her new family.
Yesterday we spent the afternoon at a fundraiser in which we viewed this beautiful film. The featured family is one of the families in There Is No Me Without You. It's a truly wonderful story of loss and love. I highly recommend this film...and the proceeds benefit the Grace Fund which gives grants to place special needs children, large sibling groups and older children into families.
A Few of My Favorite Things
Cold crisp sunny days
Sight seeing drives in the car with my family in this kind of weather
Yummy hot drinks for those drives
