Final thoughts

The trip to Guatemala came at just the right time.  From the perspective of someone who visited years ago among a whirlwind of the final steps in the process of bringing Grace home, it was nice to return to see it again in a less stressful way.  For Grace, it answered some questions about where she came from and, hopefully, started to help her build a sense of pride in the place of her birth.

We met some great people. We did a lot of fun things. We saw some beautiful places and we were reminded that despite the poverty in this country, the people are kind and welcoming.

I know we will return soon.  And, this time, it wont take 8+ years.
