My family got some good news recently. 
Looks like we will be visiting Ethiopia after a long time.

I have wondered what it would be like when I finally go back.

Not sure if it is the same for all immigrants, but the thought of when you would land back home is something that you obsesses about - particularly right after you set foot here.  

I have been told that a lot has changed in Ethiopia. I probably wont recognize the streets. I will likely even be unable to communicate easily with locals.  But I am still eager and also anxious. 

There is a part of me that recognizes that it will always be home and yet not in the same way it was before I came to the US.

 The stronger urge for me is to find a way to help other diabetics in Ethiopia. I am particularly eager to help children and teens who have type 1 diabetes.I have learnt so much from being in the US. Information and hope are the two thing I got in abundance here. And the two can be powerful weapons against something like diabetes.   

Maybe I will have a going back home post series.

    @keni returning to the place where you grew up is very emotional. Especially if you haven't been back since you were a child. I hope your home coming fills your heart and inspires your future.
    Thanks for sharing.
