Play time at Healing Home

Last post I showed a few pics from our time at Healing Home, the cleft pallet orphanage here.  I go once a week with a few ladies and we have a class for the older children (older being about a year old) and then stay and play with the babies.  We are teaching the children English, Chinese and sign-language.  It is a lot of fun, we sign and songs and play little instruments.  Really we just love being able to spend time with the children and see the smile on their faces.  The younger ones have mostly not had their surgeries yet as you can see from the pictures.  The amazing thing is that the older ones who have healed from their surgery you can barely tell that anything was wrong in the first place.  Healing home will pay for the children's surgeries through donations and their after care until they are adopted.  The children are mostly sponsored so someone is sending them money once a month to pay their expenses.  It is a really great place for the children, they are well taken care of and seem really happy.  If you want more info on what they do at Healing home you can visit their website by clicking the link below.
