Hi! Greetings, Liebe Grusse and Groetjes. I am Tracy McCafferty, and I have spent the majority of my adult life living in Germany, Holland and Austria. Since I was born in America, that makes me an expatriate, and since my kids were born in a country other than the one of their citizenship and have lived in European settings most of their lives, that makes them Third Culture Kids (TCKs). Third Culture Kids (also referred to as Global Nomads) have some incredibly diverse experiences, and as a result, some dynamic strengths, and also some unique challenges. As a life-long learner interested in cultures, languages and stories, I have become incredibly interested and invested in the study of the culture, language and unique stories of the individuals that live this lifestyle. With a background in journalism, English and counseling, it felt like a natural progression for me to help share the special stories, strengths and challenges of this population and provide a forum for insights, information and interaction. For all the TCKs, their family members and friends, and anyone interested in this exceptional population, welcome, Wilkommen and welkom.
