Dominican Republic Update 4

Posted: Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Today was another full day at the orphanage. It's so fun to walk into the house and be greeted by all the kids with smiles, secret handshakes, and our names. It's amazing the bonds that have been created so quickly. 
We got to meet with the house mom this morning and learn more about the orphanage and how it got started. Her passion for children is evident and contagious. 

This team has surprised me with their willingness to do anything needed. They do it with a smile and work hard until it's done. Today we worked more on the new addition and some sanding and painting jobs inside. 

There was also plenty of basketball, UNO, and hair braiding that took place. We are looking forward to another day there tomorrow.
