Africa. Their hearts are stirred when they learn of the war plaguing the country
and decide to move to Uganda with their two-year-old biological son.
They begin with the intention of completing their adoption and starting a
non-profit organization to empower Africans. The people they encounter will
alter the course of their lives. MOVING ON steps into the lives of three
incredible Ugandans- Betty, Charles, and Joyce. Some... of the stories begin with heartbreak, tragedy and
loss but all are stories of hope- stories of moving on past pain and apathy.
Betty is the house manager and a single mother. Her own past is full of
injustice, but she rises above despair and chooses hope. Charles is the head
tailor for EPOH. Living with HIV, he has a defiant optimism in the face of
adversity. Joyce is a mother of five with a story representative of many in
Uganda and she dances in the face of opposition.
We usually see tragedy
out of Africa- stories of war, injustice, genocide, poverty and despair. We
don't have to define people by the worst moments in their lives. A relationship
with Africa is not one sided- the West will not rescue Africa. Our rescues are
tied up in one another.
