This past June I led a two week No Barriers Youth trip hiking through the Mustang region of Nepal. My kids, Emma and Arjun, were among the participants and afterwards, along with my wife, Ellie, our family stuck around and made an extra excursion.
We returned to Yak and Yeti where we first met my son prior to adopting him. We had played cricket, baseball, and soccer with Arjun in that same yard and stayed in the same place some 11 years ago.
It was a special opportunity to visit Arjun’s birthplace and experience Nepali culture together. Not only does Arjun have a personal connection to his home country; it was additionally meaningful that Nepal is the origin and roots of our history as a family together.
