Praise for Healing Afghanistan

“The stories and photographs in this inspirational book will make the reader feel joy, tears and hope for the children of Afghanistan . It’s quite an emotional journey as well as an inspiring and enduring collection of amazingly artistic photography.”

        – Chuck Kent


“Congratulations! The final product is stunning, and I can only imagine how liberating it feels to see [the book] sitting in your house! I love how raw the pictures are. One of the hardest parts for me about being in Kenya was finding a way to take pictures without feeling like I was belittling the girls or putting them on display. Between the photos and the narrative, you expose the joy and happiness that children DO experience despite their circumstances. I think that’s an aspect about orphanages in third world countries that a lot of people don’t know about; there is so much gratitude and optimism that leaves those children sincerely smiling.

I admire your traveling spirit, your compassion, empathy and boundless energy. Your book is proudly on display in my apartment!”
