And She's Off!

I am interrupting my Saffron Bolu postings for an important announcement! I have written about Heybet before. We've known her since the summer we arrived here. She became our weekly babysitter and more like a daughter/sister to us. She is a refugee from Iraq who has lived through, in her 23 years, more than most of us in a lifetime. She has waited 9 years, 2 months, and 10 days to have a country to call her own. Well last night at 1am, she boarded the plane to AMERICA!!!!!!!!!

We had our goodbye with her on Sunday. We treated her to her last Turkish meal, and the kids filled her with descriptions and stories of America and specifically their grandparents' house (where she will be living).

We will miss you, sweet Heybet, but we are SO happy for you!!
