Post Summary: 

“It feels like I am a million miles away from where I might have been, had God not interrupted my life from the course it was taking. I’ve gone from being a ‘Lost Boy’ of Sudan to a proud U.S. citizen who is loved and cared for by so many people in this country – no longer ‘lost!’” –Lopez Lomong
