Jehona is in the middle (in blue) and
Sara is on the far right in black
Jehona turned 16 years old last week. When we first came to Macedonia, she was 8 !! We were looking back at all the pictures we have made of Sara and Jehona over the years and remembering all that we have been through together.
In the first few years we were together, the Kosovo War happened. Jehona and Sara (who will be 18 in August) helped their parents, Arville & me to take food, clothing, and medicine to many families in Kosovo. They even blew up balloons and made animals out of them for children - and they were only children themselves. Now they are both beautiful young women. It has been our joy to be like their second parents (I guess we are old enough to be their grandparents!).
