More Orphanage Photos...











When we went to the Pattaya Orphanage, I had taken along a bunch of little knick knacks and toys that had been collected over the 5 months prior to the trip. One of the only regrets, on my trip, that I had was not being able to be there when the toys were handed out to the kids. Unfortunately, the timing just didn't allow for it. The orphanage was fine with me handing everything out, however, the kids had just gone down for a nap and they weren't going to be getting up for 1 1/2 hours and we couldn't wait around because we had to get to Bangkok :-( BUT... I was checking out their website a couple of days ago and they actually posted pictures of the kids when they received the gifts. I haven't been able to figure out how to copy and save them myself, but if you copy and paste this link (sorry, I'm experiencing technical difficulties (surprise) and cannot get the actual link to post) --------->

you'll be able to see the pictures. I may not have been able to be there, in person, but these pictures just gave me the biggest smile!

DUDE! How cool is that that they took pictures of the gifts? THat's so awesome! It's funny to see the finished product first on your head in Sunny Southern Cali and to now see them on needy children in Thailand. You have such a good heart, Julie!
