Anna Danforth, Author



My name is Anna Danforth and my book, Raising a Family Overseas, is for you if you are moving or living overseas or if you know someone who is moving or living overseas.

I grew up in Cameroon as a third culture kid where I developed a passion to help global families thrive overseas. I married my high school sweetheart from DR Congo and we raised our two kids in Lesotho and on a farm in South Africa.  I drew on my experiences as a third culture kid, missionary, and teacher at the Africa Orientation Course to write Raising a Family Overseas.  I live on a fruit tree and macadamia farm in KwaZulu Natal with my husband, two kids, dogs, cats, horse, and best friends.


I wrote Raising a Family Overseas from the perspective of a TCK, teacher, and expat parent, whose passion is to help families build strong connections with their kids and their host cultures. Over 100 global families share their stories and insight on what works and what doesn't work in global family life. This is your chance to learn from them and apply the strategies that will work best for your family.  I want to give you every opportunity to thrive, not just survive, during your experience abroad.
