Myla and I went on our first Ordinary Hero mission in June. I still don’t have the right words for the experience. I shared a few of the highlights on instagram @see_jane, and I created the video above to remember as many details as possible.

I find my greatest confidence as a mom in the secret language I share with my children. During this trip that included Myla squeezing my hand when she was overwhelmed with emotions as she helped a child. A quick glance I would give Myla as children ran to greet us. Good night hugs that speak volumes. We have ways of letting each other know we need more or we’re getting enough.

Jane and Myla Rhodes, orginary heros organization via seejaneblogHappy Valentine’s Day, friends!!! I hope your weekend is filled with love and the people you love most! Do you feel like sharing some love today?

Myla and I are planning to join the orindary hero organization this June for a trip to Ethiopia to serve children in villages, orphanages, and the countryside. We’ve joined together with others who will be partnering with Ethiopian organziations in an effort to make sure kids there who are waiting for adoptions have the nutritious food, and resources they need to grow, learn and play like we, as a family, are able to do every day.

Ordinary Hero’s mission is to inspire and empower ORDINARY people to make an extraordinary difference in the life of a child in need.
