Meeting Haiti's Disabled Children, Part 2

This is the second post about my day with our sophomore class. We visited Village Espoir, an orphanage in Port-au-Prince that cares for, among others, about 25 severely disabled kids.

Laundry lines at the orphanage
This little guy was uncomfortable, but Gael persisted in comforting him
This child just hung out alone
Raphael helped this young man use a machine to indicate his needs
Randolph helped this girl stretch our her hand, which was injured in a stroke
Wheelchair obstacle course
Joycelynn helped this girl touch the bells at each station
Wheelchair races. Seriously.
Coloring Easter baskets
Breathtakingly beautiful
Playing with my shades
Unhappy in the baby room
The babies were just really desperate for attention and snuggles.
Valerie helping make the Easter baskets
Sam leading worship
Natural entertainers :)
Loving singing time!
The faces.

What a day.

I went home; the children stayed in the orphanage.

They'll stay there until they're adopted, or until their late teens.

Thank you God for that day.
