I walked into the orphanage and there were about 20 kids. The rest of the kids had been taken to the hospital that day to be tested for HIV. The rest of our time at the orphanage we spent with these 20 kids. Every one of them walked with their feet turned out from being layed in a crib all of their lives. I will never forget the first little girl I picked up. She reached her hands up to me and I could see in her eyes, that all she wanted was a loving touch. When I picked her up and held her on my hip, the first thing I noticed was that her dress was wet. Every one of those kids were soaked in pee, because no one cared enough to change their clothes or clean them. That was their everyday life. Being stuck in a crib all day and peeing all over themselves helplessly. My heart broke for them, and I want to do something to fix this problem.. But being so far away it's hard.
We had many things happen to us in that one week that Stacy said had never happened before on any of her trips. I can't share all those stories yet, but I plan to! We learned to never say never, because the second we do...what we thought would never happened happens.. God protected us that week and for that I am more than grateful! Thank you so much for all the prayers!!
I plan to continue telling stories from my trip on this blog. So keep watching for new posts! I have lotsss more stories
