I’m giving you an invitation enclosed below to join me and others our journeys as TCKs and ATCKs. Once accepted, I will email you a letter twice a month starting from July. Upon receiving it, you will travel with God and us through times of grief & joy, uncertainty & certainty, the past & present, and introspection & observation.
Boundaries are boundless, and cultures are clothes in my world.
Very Sincerely Yours,
Clarissa Choo-Choo Train
P.S. “A third culture kid is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside their parents’ culture. The third culture kid builds relationships to all the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Although elements from each culture are assimilated into the third culture kid’s life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of the same background, other TCKs.” (Pollock and Van Reken, 2009)
