While my work as a non profit founder is unbelievably stressful at times I have to remind myself that my kids are STILL worth it.The one's who tell me over the phone "I'm not fine because I'm missing your hugs.The ones I would find every morning and night at the school making sure they got their hug. The ones who clung to me every night I almost had to pry myself away from them because they knew when I left no one else will make sure they get food that day.The little one who would look for me every night after school ended to tell me he was going home (he wanted his goodnight hug) The ones who have shown me that you can happy even if you have no family and few possessions. They rejoice after playing games like they won the lottery. They could not have possibly been happier if they had been told they'd won a million dollars or were going to "Disney World, not that they know what that is. The ones who can use a camera or cellphone within mins of being taught how they work. The ones (all of them) who are taken to a store and usually don't ask for a single thing and they don't pick up every single item they see. I was only asked once if they could get ice cream which costs maybe 25-30 cents. The ones who love Justin Bieber's music (both boys and girls). The ones who finally open up and talk about their life, some never mention their struggles because no one has ever asked if their sad, mad, sick, hungry, tired happy or anything else. They love going to restaurants and eating pizza because some have had it before. They eat the same beans and cornmeal everyday at every meal and rarely complain. They dance like their life depends on it,its the only time when they show their real personalities and are not shy. They tell me I'm their best friend, that they are happy and thankful for what I do for them. I have NEVER known kids like these before who find happiness no matter what they've suffered and they still trust and hope and dream. Those are MY CHILDREN!
I'm so lucky and privileged to know them..See their photos below.
