" I know that I have a purpose to bring the next generation home !
This is coming from a little girl born in Brooklyn, who walked city sidewalks, and was surrounded by skyscrapers, glistening lights, and stretched highways but ...
always had the desire to lay on the earth of my grandparents souls... loved listening to old time stories about the travels / life in SVG- my granddad was a police officer , who swooned my grandma. My grandmother was a registered nurse & midwife in Barrouallie who delivered over 150 babies ! I loved coconut sweet tarts, cod fish cakes, roasted breadfruit, cassava, and dumplings made from my grandmother's hands... while she mixed the cocoa tea with lots of sugar !! I am indeed grateful ".
