I write from the perspective of an American who has lived abroad for a decade and a half (at least!). I am a husband to an amazing woman who is a visual artist and photographer. I am father to three incredible young adults and father-in-law to a wonderful Russian/Ukrainian young man who is from Central Asia!
In 2008, my family and I began to volunteer at a children’s home for mentally challenged children in a Central Asian city. We love to photograph and write about these kids because we first like to be with them. They look at us as their family (I am even called “grandpa” by some).
I value the Bible, prayer, family, the Church, nature and peace (yes, world peace and the peace of God that can guide one’s heart)
