"Africa. I write it, I cry. I say it, I cry. I tell people my heart is for Africa and they look at me like I'm crazy as tears roll down my face. This year coming; 2015, we will be going to Africa to fulfill a dream. To meet the people who have my heart..."
Artist Melissa Baker Nguyen and her spouse do not have children of their own. They've tried unsuccessfully, medically, naturally, "everything you can think of, we've done" Melissa says, and so they wait, and pray, and believe for their miracle.
"But what if... what if, we took the energy that we are putting into hoping and praying for a baby of our own and we gave it... what if we gave to others who are already here... what if we gave our hearts, our finances and our love to others. To children who are struggling to survive, who need to be loved, whose hearts are here... what if?"
And so their journey begins. Africa calls, and this amazing artist and her equally amazing husband follow a pull to contribute their lives to something bigger than themselves - an orphanage in Africa.
