a trip to a hospital for terminally ill children in Siberia, and later to an orphanage
in Mexico. Seeing a small snapshot of the great need started her journey and fueled

to Peru and Haiti which continued to expand your vision and passion for orphaned
children. Diane has a BA in Communication from Trinity International University
