My name is Chelsea and I have been blessed with a neat life story. I grew up as a missionary kid in Thailand, moved to Canada when entering high school and then married an American man in 2019. I now reside in a small town in Idaho.
Love at Second Sight
Life isn't a fairytale. It's full of challenges, pain and heartache. Yet, there are sweet moments that we experience which give us a glimpse into what a fairytale might be like. Meeting my husband for the second time was one of those moments.
Until We Meet Again
She was in the hospital...again. According to my mom, she wasn't doing well. I didn't understand that "not well" meant "very bad". My sister had been in and out of the hospital multiple times but I didn't realize that this time she wouldn't return home. I didn't know that I'd have to soon say "good-bye".
He was now without a father. After losing his mother at a young age, his father was the only family he had left. Now he had no one.

How was an 8-year-old boy supposed to journey through life without a family to care for him?
It was my normal: running through the bush, playing in the midst of the trees and dirtying myself in the mud. One could easily get lost in the jungle foliage but I had learned at a young age how to stay close enough to home. There was an excitement to being in the wilderness of Thailand. The bright colors were beautiful to behold and danger lurked in the shadows; poisonous snakes and other untamed wildlife. I had learned at a young age on how to be weary of where I stepped.
