Look into these eyes …
Even wearing and holding their new gifts, the underlying sadness these children carry within cannot always be erased.

What do they say to you …
These children could be anywhere ….. in this case, they happen to be in Africa.
They are orphans without the warmth and love of a mother or father.

Imagine yourself being fortunate enough to be able to give them a smile, a hug, share a story, a meal, a piece of clothing, some school supplies.
Each child stole a little more of my heart.
They did not choose to be born ….. They did not choose to be poor ….. They did not choose to be orphans …..

It takes so little to mean so much …
