"They don't have very much at all, but they are happy and laugh" -Seth

Some orphanages were better off than others.  
Some were poorly staffed with 40 children per 2 workers.  
One toilet for the entire orphanage of 50 children.  
Running water was hit and miss.   
Therapy and medical help for children with special needs was infrequent.  
Other orphanages had more funds available to them and were much better off.   
But regardless of the conditions… 
the children smiled.

"Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness
 and just be happy."
-Robert Brault

"One joy scatters a 100 griefs"
-Chinese Proverb

"Happiness is found in the quiet and simple moments of life."

"Gather the crumbs of happiness 
and they will make you a loaf of contentment"
- Author Unknown

 "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.  Happiness is the spiritual experience 
of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."
-Denis Waitley

These series of posts are just amazing. These children are so precious, and what a wonderful opportunity that you and your family got the chance to get to know them and to serve them.
