Our Journey Begins...

What started as an outlandish idea at a fundraiser for the SOLD Project -- "Hey, let's get a group together to travel to Thailand and figure out what we can do to stop child prostitution and human trafficking" -- has now become a reality. It's so real, in fact, that we have the battle wounds (immunization shots and ensuing sore arm muscles) to prove it. Sitting in pre-Typhoid protection mode yesterday at the health department, my friend Susan and I looked at each other with fear and trepidation. This is actually happening. We are hopping the pond hoping, praying and dreaming that what our high school teachers and college professors preached is actually true -- "All it takes is one person to change the world."

Susan, Jenny, Marcia and I will update this blog with stories, pictures and reflections while on our trip. This will be a way for all of you to come along on our journey. Let the world-changing adventure begin...
