The author was born in the United States in a small town called Winchendon, known for it’s famous Toy Factory in the State of Massachusetts. At 3-months of age she was packed up with diapers and dollies and taken on a 6-week ocean journey to the country of Pakistan. Pakistan became her adopted home and she had less and less in common with her passport country. She moved to the United States after graduation from high-school and became a Registered Nurse. She was fortunate to marry her soul-mate and they embarked on a life of adventure and surprise which has continued through 5 kids, 3 continents and many houses. Her international experience includes growing up in Pakistan, working as a nurse in Pakistan, raising a family for 7 years in Egypt and numerous medical missions trips to various countries – the latest in October 2010 to Pakistan to participate in Medical flood relief. She has a passion to connect across borders and barriers and the blog is her attempt at having a voice to do just that.
