When we visited Jorja's orphanage,
we were allowed to go to Jorja's room,
and visit with her friends.
I was filled with emotions as
we walked through the hallways.
Jorja and a few of her friends
were running up the stairs and down
We followed Jorja in her room,
There were a few kids with Jorja,
and then there were more in their cribs.
Knowing that this orphanage is 85%
special needs kids,
I looked around to see if I could see their needs.
There were six children with unrepaired cleft lift.
I was trying to figure out how I could bring
these kids home with me,
and to our surgeon.
Later at lunch,
Bryan asked the director how many kids
in his orphanage would be adopted,
his answer was that
65% would not be adopted.
Oh, how we ached to bring
beautiful children home with us.
I had a hard time leaving the orphanage,
and leaving those children.
They just said "good-bye" to their friend,
How are these kids feeling?
What do they think about that night
at bed time?
Will anyone hold them when they are sad
and miss their friend?
I wish Happy Endings for all of them!
