Yesterday we sent our respective eldest children off on the trip of a lifetime. One where they’ll learn about their heritage and identity, come face to face with a tragic and unfathomable history, and also celebrate strength and perseverance. It’s hard to be a parent. To give our children the privilege of these experiences, but also want to hold their hands and never let them go. It’s the tug of war of parenting. Come here and go away and see the world, both at the same time. We’re both feeling a little sad, but also excited and can’t wait to hear the stories of an incredible journey that forced us to let go, just a little bit. #MOL2018
