the Fatherless

Tanja and Bethany have been going weekly to a local orphanage run by some amazing Catholic Nuns.  Some weeks, Jillian and Robbie join them and, last week, we all had the chance to love on some babies.  The orphanage is severely understaffed and underfunded but the tireless workers have impressed us greatly with their love, patience and grace under difficult circumstances.  They are able to take care of the basic needs (feeding & cleaning) but don't have enough staff to be able to spend a lot of time holding the babies, playing with them, etc.  So, that's what we get to do - hold them, love on them, play with them.
