Taking in and embracing my surroundings. Embracing myself .. To love me as me. To grow as I learn . To love hard. To live in the moment . Most importantly to give back the knowledge I learn with others. What's life without giving ? #EmbracingMyNaturalCurves #JourneyToMyHappyPlace #JustDidIt #4TheLoveOfHaiti ??☀️ ?: @ted_joseph

If you’re wondering why Angela’s so in love with Haiti, here’s her response.
Today was a hard day. I shed some tears when I left . The kids and Michael didn't want to see me go. Im super emotional . I feel so attached to the children. Giving love brings attachment. I vow to come back and do more for these kids! @missionofgrace #JourneyToMyHappyPlace #JustDidIt #4TheLoveOfHaiti .
