After Returning Home From Rescuing Manno

As I sit here this evening I can hardly even believe that it has been three years almost exactly to the week since we began this endeavor and we have been working towards this incredibly worthy goal. I just want to express to all of you how incredibly humbled and fortunate I feel to have been able to go along this magnificent journey with all of you. I am not going to lie there is a little pang of hollowness knowing that this is over & our task is accomplished, a great feat I realize, but also garnished with a bit of sadness that I no longer have no excuse to contacting all of you on a regular basis. Manno has become so much a part of my consciousness even through so much I have gone through, the birth of my son, perhaps leaving teaching after 24 years and the anchor of helping Manno has now evaporated and that it seems odd not having that all consuming task to occupy my thoughts. I realize that we are not out of the woods yet, though I am confident he will get through quarantine with no issues, the integration process is daunting, however that is now out of my boat & up to those who are expert at this. God speed little Manno.

More than anything I just wanted to say what an absolute joy it has been to go on this adventure with all of you & it is so encouraging that I am raising my son in a world that has such competent and caring people like all of you. I will never forget each one of you, for without all of you, each individual this rescue could not have transpired and I will never forget this incredible journey. I only hope that our paths cross again and know that wherever you are and whatever your circumstances you will always have a friend, an admirer, and someone in awe of who you all are. This gives me such hope as it demonstrates what selfless love can accomplish
Thank you all once again and love to each & every one of you
