    Hi Anne – We had fun catching up with your Dad in Kennies last week. He showed us some of your pictures on his phone and shared your blog site. I love seeing these photos of you and your lovely new family and friends, in such a beautiful place. Thank you for creating this blog – it is a delight to see a bit about your life in Lesotho. Take care Anne. Steve and I are thinking of you and wishing you all the best – Laura James (Seth & Pete’s mom)
