Who is my favorite?

Well that’s easy to answer. There is Immunati.  He is a two year old boy who has been here since November.  He hasn’t said a word since being here and the reason may be because he doesn’t speak English or Afrikaans. He requires a lot of attention and love.  I love just holding his hand to comfort him while crying.  But then there is Karan.  She is 1 1/2 years old and is very tiny.  She has been at the orphanage since a birth.  She has a smile that will melt your heart.  Also, there is Bradley.  He has the biggest personality.  A smile that lights up the sky and when he cries it hurts your heart.  He loves playing with my rings on my necklace and making them disappear into my shirt.  Wait, what about the twins, Asher and Aiden?  They love to play rough house and get each other in trouble. Everyone gets them confused even though I can clearly see the difference.  Both of them love it when I read the “dog book”, constantly screaming “DOGGY DOGGY!”  Cecil (Cee) is my little angel from above.  Most will say she is too much of a handful because of her autism.  With a little tender love and care she is incredible. Don’t take your eyes off her, because she’ll be standing on a windowsill.  I can’t forget about Tatium.  She cries a lot, but a big hug and a push on the swing usually brings a smile to her face.  Lastly Pearl. Pearl keeps to herself.  She is very quiet; but, also very sweet.  If you haven’t noticed, I can’t just pick one child.  Each child has a very special place in my heart and adds character to the class.  They teach me how to love and smile no matter what.  They also teach me it’s okay to cry sometimes as long as you get back up.

Until next time Jill
