Tuesday we reflected on the simple things. We were at the orphanage early and in walked a little girl with wet hair that was tangled. She sat with us for a while. We knew her hair needed combing and wondered when the nanny would be in to do this. Shortly she came in with a wide toothed comb and slowly began the task of combing this girls hair. As she did the little one started to cry and right away three of us got up and started to kiss and whisper sweet nothings to her. She stopped immediately and just soaked up the love. I was happy we could do this. We all reflected in such simple things. Loving on these kiddos. More important than anything. Except finding them a forever family.
We also found something that made almost every child smile. We have a Polaroid camera that prints stickers. We have been sticking them on the backs of donated credit card mirrors. (the wonderful girls club of adopted kiddos in NY donated them.) They have brought smiles to the faces of all the kiddos.
Send prayers and positive energy as we cross the province. We hope to do good work and help as many children as possible find their forever families.
