Excerpt: "When I left the United States to live in Rwanda, Africa, I had a nine-monthold baby, and I was pregnant. I knew I wanted to help the Rwandan people but wasn’t sure how. The first challenging years included learning French in Belgium (where my son was born) then learning Kinyarwanda (the language of Rwanda) from French. Living in Rwanda while learning language with children was incredibly taxing, difficult, and dangerous."
