I'm afraid that I am a little late to read about your cause as I only found this thread a few days ago (I'm a new member here and just purchased my first Zoomer as it's called in the good old UK
I've spent the last few evenings reading through this entire thread, 2-3 hours every night. It's been an amazing read.
What you are doing here is truly amazing, you obviously had to deal with some horrendously difficult things in your past, but to hear what you have done with your life and what you have achieved, I am extremely proud of you. You are a shining light of hope to thousands of people and I wish you all the best for the 2nd leg of your journey.
It's been awesome to hear about everything you've done, the people you met, the places you visited etc. For some reason I've now got a craving to try some of these canned Vienna Sausages that you seem to have a love/hate relationship with, lol.
I'll have to pick myself up a tin or two next time i'm in the US, heheh.
I wish there was something I could do to help your cause, but as i'm across the other side of the pond, it makes me feel a little bit helpless.
The very least that I could do was to make a donation, so I've just sent one via your Journeyfromsilence.com Paypal link.
I would like to congratulate you for what you are doing. It's an amazing thing.
Hope you had a good Christmas, have a happy new year and an even better 2013.
Good luck with JFS 2.0, I wish you the very best.
