Orphanage Trip


Today we finished up the paperwork at the registration office and then took a longish bus ride out into the suburb where J’s orphanage is.  It is a beautiful new facility.

J was hoping to meet up with a number of his friends, but it turned out most were still in school, and we were too early to see them.  This was a big disappointment.  He made up for not seeing them by texting them continuously as soon as he had access to his tablet.


It was interesting to see the place where he grew up and to meet some of his teachers and friends. We also ate lunch in his cafeteria, so saw a bit of what ordinary food has been like for him.
