Global Children’s founder, Laura Tancredi, first visited Cambodia in 1990 as a high school student. After becoming exposed to the Cambodian culture in Phnom Penh, she immediately fell in love and grew an attachment with the children living in Cambodia’s Nutrition Center Orphanage.

Theresa McDermott has chased her “ideal” life as an urban-dwelling, punk(ish) singer-songwriter to the very end of its possible existence. She is broke, options have run out and she happens to have a few kids she is raising on her own since their dad split a year ago. Facing eviction and nowhere to go, Theresa packs up her children and what is left of her life and moves back to the small rural town, childhood home and parents she deliberately ran from a decade ago. Old wounds, unattainable dreams, and some “other things” are exposed as a fractured family works to become whole and a woman with a few kids learns to become a mother.
