Episode Info

Episode Info: Wherever you currently find yourself in the world, it’s no secret that all our lives have been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. Our circumstances and situations might be different, but in an effort to create some solidarity between us we are starting a new mini-series titled “This Global Pandemic.”  Each episode will have an interview with a new expat woman who will share her perspective on what life in the time of a global pandemic has been like for her.  In today’s episode you’ll hear from Kim, who lives in Ukraine with her husband and their six kids. They also have guardianship of three men with special needs and they work to deinstitutionalize people with disabilities. Kim shares with us what is was like for her family to unexpectedly welcome several new people into their home to quarantine with them, help a family get their adopted son to America in the middle of the pandemic, and what the Lord has been teaching her about releasing her love of control. Grab your favorite beverage and a comfy seat and prepare to be blessed by Kim’s story. We also have show notes at Light reading for your pleasure.

Did you stay in your host country or evacuate back to your home country? If you stayed, tell us a little about how your host country has responded to the crisis. If you evacuated, tell us what that experience was like. What does a pandemic looks in Ukraine? What was a moment you realized COVID-19 was serious?  Have there been times when you broke down (maybe with tears, maybe in frustration)? What caused that to happen? How did you move forward? What has community looked like for you while sheltering in place? With an already full house, what has it been like adding two extra people? What are your kids’ thoughts about the coronavirus? How have you talked about this with them and how have they responded? While staying home, what are some of your favorite activities? Have you started doing something you didn’t normally do prior to the global pandemic? What are some plans/trips/celebrations you had that have changed or been cancelled? How have you worked through that loss? What are some of the worries/concerns you have? What are you listening to these days?
