Emily's Year in the Dominican Republic

As most of you know, I will be spending 13 months volunteering in the Dominican Republic as a Speech Language Pathologist in an orphanage, starting Janurary 2015. I am going with an organization called Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (Our little brothers), which takes volunteers from all over the world to assist with their orphanages for long periods of time. I am really looking forward to this opportunity to love on kids and just be a part of their lives!

Once my departure gets a little closer, I will post a link to my blog here so you can follow along with my experiences.

Also, I am trying to raise some financial support for while I am gone. If you would like to learn more and/or give, follow this link:

I have already felt so much love, support and encouragement from my family and friends. This experience is going to be difficult, and I know that your continued support and encouragement along the way is a big part of what is going to keep me going.

Thank you so much!
