i use windows movie maker.

I went to Nashville for the new year. On the drive back, it finally happened. I’ve missed the children since I’ve been gone, but now it’s different. I miss them so much it hurts my heart. You know that place in your chest that usually creates this deep, deep pain when a relationship ends? Dang, it’s that same part that’s killing me now. I don’t know when I’ll see their faces in person again. I hope someday in the next year or two. Initially, I was done done done with Uganda. I was going to leave and have the memories, end of story. Now, I want to plan a two or three week trip back to see the children.

Blah, blah, blah…

I am not a good movie producer. I like the fade in/fade out effect. And as a cinematographer, well, sometimes I jerk the camera around. But here’s a little closer look at some of the kids who have forever changed/healed/broke/loved me.

Oh, PS – Thanks to The New Frontiers for unknowingly letting me use “Mirrors” as the soundtrack to this video.

  1. Well now, I just had a feeling I should check in. Of course now I know why. Sweet Colleen – your heart is stretched across the earth! I understand why.


  2. Well for not being much of a movie maker, you did a remarkable job. It made me cry. It’s so beautiful 🙂 I know they miss you as much as you miss them, but know that they will never, ever forget you. I’m sure you will find a way to go visit them again soon.
    Love you sister!
