Stuck in Germany...

I've blogged a lot about my Laurels as of yet with them beginning their new lives as the newest members of Relief Society. One of my older Laurels who graduated last year has been on my mind a lot lately. My dear friend Meaghan has been on the adventure of her lifetime. Plans for a marriage were put on hold while her significant other plans to depart for his mission. Instead of sitting around pining for him, she had found a job a friend had recommended as an au pair in Germany. Having been offered the job the family flew her over to Germany. Unfortunately, upon finding she suffers from depression from time to time they declared it was a disease and wanted her to leave. One thing led to another and she fled their house that very night. She moved from place to place and unfortunately in her short journey she lost her passport. She is now, for all intensive purposes, stuck on an American military base waiting to receive a new passport or travel visa so she can fly down to Milan to meet another family who is interested in her nanny services. Through all this she has made friends and is maturing at a rapid rate. She has kept a good head on her shoulders and makes her decisions prayerfully. I am so proud of her and I know her parents are as well. I pray she will remain safe and all will be well in the end.

Until then she is weaving a beautiful story she will tell her children of someday...being stuck in Germany.

Someday she'll look back on this as a grand adventure. Until then, I hope she's safe and takes good care of herself. She's definintely growing up fast.

It is stressful, but I am a little envious too.
