We went to an orphanage yesterday to feed the babies and it was amazing. I have never been to an ophanage before and it positively broke my heart. There were about ten of us and they told us to go in, grab a baby, take it outside, feed it, then take it back in and get another baby because there were lots of babies to be fed.
We walked into the room and it was basically a hardwood floor with a gym mat down and children all over the place, most of them laying on their backs on the floor. Some of them were sick, and it was really sad. A couple of girls came up to me right away and wanted to be held. One girl in particular wanted nothing more than to just hug me close and it totally and completely broke my heart. I kept her with me the whole time and managed to feed her and 2 other small babies.
When we had to leave, her and another girl cried and chased me out. I couldn't believe how sad I was to leave. I'm still so overwhelmed by how emotional the experience was that I am not sure what can be learned from it, I just know that I'm glad I went. And I can't wait to go back.
