This family!!!! They are amazing!!! I am so so so so so glad I was able to meet them. I feel like Michiko and I were destined to be friends. One of my beautiful clients connected me with her through Facebook over a year and a half ago. The Straker family lived in Abilene, Texas during the same time frame that my family lived there. We never met in Abilene. Actually we weren’t even connected via the internet until after they moved to Japan. So when I heard about Project Hohoemi and learned that she was the awesome lady heading it up I knew I had to be apart of it! This beautiful family live in Ishinomaki. What was a weekend mission trip for me is their entire life. I just think that is so beautiful and inspiring. I sincerely hope that I get the chance to spend more time with this couple and their adorable children. Ok ok. I can’t write any more about these people because it will seriously make me cry. Meeting them meant that much to me. So on to their photos. Enjoy!
