I was out running errands with our newborn Peter when I got the call from Dan.
"They have an accompanied to Turkey for two years. What do you think?"
"Um, sure. Let's do it!" was my response. At the time, I don't think I could've easily found Turkey on a map, let alone fully comprehend packing up and moving to the Middle East. A week earlier, it looked like Dan would be stationed in Korea for a year...without us. So when this new opportunity came for our family to stay together, we jumped on it.
About 9 months later, we watched the movers come and pack up our lives and empty our house. Several weeks after that, we said goodbye to our families and friends, took a deep breath, and boarded a plane to start our adventure.
