WHILE they were with Miss Beth – Jose, Malaya, & I snuck over to their playroom and decorated it! We had play kitchens & dolls for the girls. We had army men & trucks for the boys!
Thank You Hampton Roads International Montessori School for reminding these children how much they are loved!
Christmas Camp Day 2 & 3 were a total success! I’m so thankful for the days we’ve spent together & for the memories we’ve created!
But look at us now? Healing…. slowly. As I stared at our courtyard this afternoon – our beautiful courtyard – – our CLEAN courtyard – – our BRIGHT courtyard – full of lights not rocks – full with 126 children who were SUPER excited to be here….
Afterwards was the orphanage kids’ birthday party, and we took silly pictures with funny hats, danced, ate brownies, and gave hugs!
Something as simple as picking up one of the orphans and holding them or a smile and a high five has a huge affect on them (and us). All that they want is a little love and attention.
