Smiling Children

Today I went and visited an orphanage actually not too far from where I’m living.
Sometimes it’s hard to fathom that some people bring these wonderful children into the world, but are not fit to raise them. Hearing stories that some children have burn scars on their arms or something similar from their parents is quiet heartbreaking. I wish I could adopt some of them because they are sooooo cute! Playing with them for a few hours, I feel like i’m doing a good deed!

Something else I was shocked about is that a lot of these kids that are at orphanages, actually still have parents, but their parents are unfit to raise them, so these little kiddies might see their parents for a couple of days a week or something like that. And then not only that, but there’s apparently a LOT of orphanages around.

But even seeing them once a month is not much to give but so worth it when you see their smiling faces and hear them laughing.

It reminds me of my foster child in Korea. I wish I had a lot of money so that I could donate it to those places and people that really need it. Those kids are starting off with a handicap, but I’m sure they can finish with a decent ending!!
