We left at 8am and arrived at the Prokopyevsk sign (below) at 11:15am...Nastia wanted a picture!
the books were a HUGE hit. In fact, no one wanted to do anything but read! ( or pretend to read...)
This is Kyrill reading to me, with Polina on my lap. A little slice of heaven.
Everywhere I turned, there were little ones with books!
This is Rosa. She was in the hospital when I came 2 weeks ago, so I'm glad I still had a few gifts left to give her! She is ten and desperate for a family....
And I did not forget about the caretakers! A generous donor allowed me to buy them a printer and a digital camera. You should have heard the screaming when I opened the bag to show them. I was kissed a hundred times by all these women...lol.
And the trip would not be complete without some one on one time with D. I learned more about him this trip...heartbreaking history. But the Director says he is the sweetest boy in the orphanage and it is her dream to see him adopted...
