This article is the third part of My Journey; a story of my life and where I’ve lived. To start from the beginning click here.
If you have been following along, you already know that I’ve moved a lot while growing up! In fact by this part of the story I’m 10 years old and have already lived in 3 states and survived two Hurricanes. So, what’s next? Another move of course!
This move would be unique because for the first time, I would live outside of the U.S. In 1993 my family and I would move to Germany but not before first staying in Las Vegas for a few months.
You see, in order for my dad to get family housing he had to what 6 months. Rather than us staying in North Carolina, where we were currently living, we decided to go to my dad’s hometown, Las Vegas. So, my mom, my two sisters and I waited in Vegas while my dad got settled into his new assignment in Hanau, Germany.
We were finally able to rejoin my father in Germany where we lived for the next 3 and a half years. While in Germany my mom would start attending church on a regular basis. Around the same time it was becoming more apparent to my sisters and I that my parents were no longer happy with each other.
Eventually my parents would split but not until we found our way back to Las Vegas. But there’s still some story to tell before we get to that point so you’ll have to follow this blog closely!
