Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

Bring Back Our Girls

Today, you have a chance to join in a group fast and prayer for the girls who are being held captive in Nigeria. You can find the details here: #BringBackOurGirls Day of Interfaith Fasting and Prayer. You can find a really excellent blog post about the whole issue here: "If All You Can Do Is Care, Then Care."

I am not full-on fasting since Sterling is still breastfeeding, but I am doing what I can. Are you joining in?
