When the place where you make your home is far away from the place you’ll always call home, it can sometimes be a difficult adjustment to make.

Such was the case for 34-year-old Denis, who left his native Uganda to move halfway around the world to attend college in the United States. Thanks to video hosting technologies such as Skype or Rebtel, and a little creativity, Denis not only stays in touch with his family 8,000 miles away,but  he also got everyone together for a seemingly impossible family portrait. Read his inspiring story here.
