I’m a Nebraska (USA) farm girl who was transplanted to Baltimore City, Maryland, in 2001. I married my husband Kakasii, a native of Tanzania (East Africa) in May 2010. We had a “long-distance marriage” for the first two years while we figured out the best way for us to be together on the same continent. In 2012, I moved to Tanzania along with our twins, Max and Elly, who at that time were almost a year old. They joined Kakasii’s three older children, Ombeni, Godson and Brenda, to make our family of seven complete. This is our story.
Our family: Godson, Kakasii, Brenda, Brenda, and Ombeni; Max and Elly in front.
