So I'll be working with the girls and mamas at Lukundane Monday through Wednesday, then helping out at the Tamiha orphanage on Thursdays, which is more of a day care/early school for kids 4-9 or so who are orphans but have extended family with whom they stay at night. Fridays I'll be up at Nicarangua, in the mountains, helping out at an orphanage that sounds a lot more dire - they have a lot of kids, including three new babies (1 month, 4 months and 6 months), many HIV positive, all of whom have nowhere else to go and sleep there as well as stay during the day. I'm excited to get some baby time but obviously worried about whether I can handle not being able to "save" them all. It's hard to know whether it's better or worse to give affection and have them form attachments and then leave, or to stay uninvolved. We'll see, I'll report back in a few days. Thanks for the comments and love, it makes me feel less far away!
