This is normal life for these children. No education, no food, no love, and very little hope. How on earth can this happen? My heart is so very heavy.
I can not help but think again about Alex’s question to me, what will happen to these children when we leave? What will happen to Stella who follows me around all day and wants to always give me hugs, Stella wants to go to schoo,l but yet there is no money to send her, she thinks she is 15, but she is not sure because her parents died when she was smaller and she lived with her elderly grandmother up until about three weeks ago. Stella tells me every time we are there. “mom, can I go with you?, mom, I want to go to school, mom can you take me with you please?” Again, my heart is heavy.
Then there is little Bridgette, BabaZ, Brenda and Wren. Bridgette is about three years old, BabaZ and Brenda are about five to seven years old and Wren I think he is twelve years old. All these children have absolutely no one, and the sad thing is there are so many more in the same situation. So what will happen to these small ones when we leave? I can ‘t bare the thought. I have to find a way to get them food and an education even after I am gone………… but how?????
