I have some wonderful friends visiting from Australia, Max and Tina Kemsley are visiting Vietnam on a holiday and wanted to come up to the orphanage and help. I have had Max repairing toys and doing designs for extending the sprinkler system so we can extend the garden.
Duc really took to Max. He followed him around and loved lying in his arms. Tina had the twins hanging on to her. They were laughing and playing and having a great time.
We managed to get in time with the babies the next morning. We all got cuddles after morning baths, Lộc is so bright and smiling, Duyen is really strong and the new baby Thanh, she is so cute. They were awake for quite a while so we spent all the time we could with them.
We went for a walk around the temple and grounds in the late afternoon, it is a lot cooler. When we were walking back we ended up talking to Hai (novice monk), Su Ha and Su Uy for 30 mins practising English. We had a wonderful time, spending time with the children and walking around the beautiful grounds.
The day after we left we received a beautiful new baby. She has long legs, fingers and toes. Her name will be Tam.
Together we can make a difference.
