Sweet Babies

We have made it our Sunday schedule to go to the orphanage in the morning for a couple of hours. Last week, we got to experience te matron again, but this week we were blessed to have the babies for ourselves.

As usual, we got to the orphanage around 8:15, but it wasn't until 9:45 that the kids were allowed off their potties. I've noticed that their poor bums are calloused from the hours they spend each day on the toilet. 

The purpose of this post is not to point out the shortcomings of the orphanage, there's a lot I could say, but instead, I just want you to see these precious children. 

We're now getting to the point where they are no longer faces, but they are people with names. 

They now recognize us and don't cry as much when we leave, because they know they'll see us again.

Matthew 19:14

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
