Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

The theme of family was a tough call for me, I came close to choosing a photo of a family I met in Kuala Lumpur. In the end, I decided to go with a very personal one that few people have seen.

I spent a long time trying to find the other half of my family who are scattered around the world. Β This is my brother Mitchell (Uzoamaka), the one that took me longest to track down. I knew he was there, in New Jersey, but it took several years of Facebook for him to come out of the woodwork. It took him a while to send me a photo, but now that he has I can see myself looking back at me. We have yet to meet, so I didn’t take this photo, but I hope to change that soon.

  1. I love that this weeks challenge is bringing so much story with it. He looks very happy, I hope you get to meet up soon (all things are possible in Christ)

  2. A very touching, personal entry. What courage it must have taken to search for and find your brother. If you can’t go see him, maybe he can come visit you.

I would love to hear from you . . .
