I am overjoyed. Our second sponsor in a little over a week has popped up in my inbox. Thank you, THANK YOU, to Julia Simens, author of Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child at Jsimens.com.
Julia has generously agreed to fund the printing and posting of 100 books to savvy international schools for their libraries.
At this year’s Families in Global Transition Conference in Washington, DC, Julia gave an electrifying performance on those beloved strangers who work in our homes during postings overseas. Here, below is a drawing by her son, Grant, aged 4 or 5 at the time, who drew their family, with their two ‘beloved strangers’ poignant in pencil when they lived in Jakarta.
