Thanks for the web site. Our church sponsored a refugee family last summer. One family provided them with a place to live and four others (including mine) tended to their everyday needs such as school contacts, doctors, dentists, shopping, outings, recreation, visits, etc. We got so close to them, especially the sixteen year old boy. He spent lots of time at our house and we got him a part time job and took him to and from work, etc. The father decided to return home and the family seemed to be ready, too - with mixed feelings, of course. The boy wanted to stay here. We came to love him as our own and he called us his American Ma Ma and Daddy. Of course, it was awful when they left. I cried for two solid days and still think about them constantly. Although the four children spoke English fairly well, we only know a few Albanian words. They cannot read or write English very well and I don't know how to communicate when we get their address. All I know is that they will go to Pristina and then home which is in a small place (American word for "flat"). I would give anything to let them know we are always here and to know they are safe and happy. Thanks.
