Timmy wrote about life at the orphanage on Facebook today:
We did a test on the kids the other day to see if they are loved enough to also show compassion to others. My Dad sat with all the kids (who were having dinner) with a plastic spoon and started eating. After a minute or two my Dad broke his spoon on purpose and began to fill sorry for himself (acting only). All the kids were just watching as Dad began to say, "I am sooo hungry and I have no spoon" and stuff like that. Johnny tells my Dad, "Get a new one." After my Dad convinced Johnny that there isn't anymore Johnny said, "No Mommy will bring you a new spoon from America." Now my Dad was trying not to laugh from a comment like that but says that, "he is hungry now." Finally Johnny says, "Here you go." and gives him his own spoon.
Another new baby. Her name is Elizabeth and she is one month old.
As far as I know she is healthy. Isn't she pretty?

Living the Life
I'm an average girl--scared to death of creepy crawlies--who somehow ended up in the bush of Africa, building and running an orphanage. I now have 28 foster kids. In addition, I have a wonderfully adventurous husband and six kids. Due to the crazy passage of time, only one is left with me and five are working and/or in college in the U.S. Life is crazy, exciting, often scary and never, ever boring.
