Dear Joy,

My heart truly goes out to you and your family as you face this 
disappointment.  You wrote them a wonderful letter, and their closed-minded 
attitude is tremendously disturbing.  I hope you find an organization that 
recognizes and welcomes all that you and your family have to offer.  Surely 
there are many other avenues that will allow you to work overseas and have 
all of the wonderfully enriching experiences which that will entail.
