Moving an Elephant: Brooke and Allison

November 30, 2016 - 2016 Operation: Ashabadi

We left Chamba this morning in a large herd and drove to Dharmsala, we had a fun surprise along the way.  Everyone is happy and mostly healthy.  We will try to give daily updates, but internet can be tricky, your patience is appreciated.


Years spending Thanksgiving in India and every year we learn something new, every year we are more grateful for all the opportunities that we have and for the people we encounter, your kids are those people. They are an incredible bunch.  We have learned more from them than they could know.  They are kind, funny and smart.  They all are deeply compassionate and look out for one another.  It is rare to have this many people all liking each other and working so hard for the common good.  They have become a close-knit bunch and we could not be more proud.  We feel extremely lucky to be in such good company.  Thank you for raising such amazing humans and thank you for allowing us to be a part of their lives.  We love them like our own, we are doing everything in our power to deliver them safely home to you.
