Born in the American South, Lisa Engle Escobar gave up the relative comfort of family, friends and home to follow her love's dictates to exotic places around the world, including the tropical paradise of Belize, where she found a new "home" and fell in love once again, not only with the region and its people, but with her young son, Christian, who shares his story as well.
