While I am typing I am holding a sweet baby on my lap. I just gave her a new set of clothes and made sure she was all clean and lotioned. We laughed and giggled. I've been teaching her to wave "Hola" to people and say "da da." She is smart as she can be. While I type she keeps banging on the key board and messing me up. Cute little mess! :0)
For those mommas out there with babies here.... rest easy... they are so loved! I will write much more on this later but I am so impressed by the love that is in this place. I can say to you that I can only hope and pray that my sweet Kaiya in China is receiving the wonderful care that your children are receiving.
Yes it is busy and a little wild. :0) Put this many kids anywhere and it's gonna be a ton of fun!! Hee hee! BUT the caretakers are precious. I have been here day and night watching them pour themselves out for these children. I greatly admire the work that is being done here. I encourage every parent who has adopted from here or is going to adopt here to see if you can find the funds to come and help them love on these children. Every time I rock one of your sweet children to sleep, fix their hair or wipe off their sweet little faces I pour love on them the way I pray someone will love on my Kaiya in China today.
We are the hands and feet of Christ... it becomes more real to me every day. What would happen if all of us began to pour out our lives for each other? The joy I feel when I wipe boogers off these sweet babies noses far outweighs the joy in doing things for myself. I truly don't know how to describe it. Our concept of joy is too narrow. It is my great honor to be here. Hugs, Angel
Now I will teach you ALL about a Guatemalan rest stop! Ya don't stop at a gas station like in the U.S.
You PAY to go potty. Then this sweet little man hands you your ration of toilet paper.
We had some fun with it!
