We're in the Chicago Tribune!


A wonderful, sincere, and kind reporter from the Chicago Tribune named Antonio Olivo interviewed me and Carlos for a story about maintaining families across borders through Skype. Later, Brian Cassella, an equally fantastic photographer, came and photographed the madness that is us talking via webcam. The photo above ran only in the print version, but the rest is visible online:

If you make it as far as the comments section, I would caution you to only proceed if you have a stomach for hateful and ignorant rantings. It's not too pretty in there!

Anyway, that's the excitement for the weekend, and it's likely I'll have another small update later this week.

Thank you for your support, as always!

You really are amazing, so glad your up there getting the word out. So many people have no idea. What an encouragement you are. I hated the skyping with hubby days and am glad to be done with them, you are hanging in there so strong. Im sure you dont feel like it sometimes but you are doing great.
