(l to r: with my Irish sister, during her first trip to England! - meeting her inspired our "Global Girls" Chinese Adoptee Links International Volunteer Pen Pal Program in 2006, which later led to "Global Girl" trips from the USA to England, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Spain. Susan, Anna and I thought it might be a grand adventure if the British, Irish & American "pen pals" could meet one another in person.
We also visited the famous ANNE FRANK MUSEUM in Amsterdam -- that was amazing, and a lifelong dream come true since I read her diary when I was 10. It was so special to share that with the girls.) Since then, many of our UK pen pals have visited their American pen pals with their own families. I love how letters travel and grow, and take off to form a life of their own.

Dear Juleigh, Hope you had a wonderful weekend in Ireland :-)
Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.
