(Just a little background)...In your lifetime you are blessed if you have a handful of people that you can call 'true friends'. I had one in Kenya when I was there teaching school for 5 years. Her name was Jackie. I taught Jackie's two children, Tracy and Brandon and fell in love with them as if they were my own. Our friendship remained strong even after I left Kenya; however I could feel it in my soul when something went terribly wrong. Jackie fought a 14 year battle with a rare form of Alzheimers. Tracy took such good care of her mother until the end. Several years later, Tracy came to live with me and my family in North Carolina. I feel that Jackie led her to me. She was such a blessing to our family and The Angus Barn, where she worked and befriended everyone there.....(Scroll forward 1o years)...Tracy is getting married and tomorrow we leave to go to her wedding and to spend two weeks in Kenya.
This is where the trip begins...
