From 2004.

Several years ago, a woman wrote to my web site from the nation of Morocco. She was looking for information about areas in the northwest. 

She also mentioned plans for going to school at Southern Oregon University, in Ashland.

I wrote that I had a brother in Ashland. They started corresponding after she had been in Ashland for a while. 

My brother, and his wife, liked Tiazza enough to "take her in," to their family.  Basically they are "empty nesters" with their own kids grown.  Tiazza is like a Daughter.  Finished with school she now works for an insurance firm. 

I was able to meet Tiazza.

Her perspective is quite interesting.  An open minded woman having grown up in the more traditional, somewhat closed minded Moroccan society.  She enjoys the multicultural life that America offers.  Call it "diversity."  Everyone in my brother's household accepts my gayness, for instance.
