Leaving India

The first woman I met is actually the mother of twin boys who live at Ashirvad. The boys are 13 years old and …

Across the Universe

I started a tradition in Nicaragua of bringing along my ukulele to our HALO supported orphanages. It’s the perfect size to travel with and the perfect size for little hands to learn to play on. I let every child paint something on the ukulele, and it’s slowly become covered by brightly colored little drawings. Source: Lacy

Saturday was one of the best days. Not just of my days here in India, but ever.
We got to go to the beach! I’m not sure who was more excited- me or the kids. It’s only about 20 minutes from the orphanage, but the kids only get to go once every few months. Imagine 75 kids all going to the beach at once, it was total chaos and so much fun! We played all day- in the water, made stuff out of sand, ate lunch, played songs, looked for seashells. A few of the boys went fishing and caught their dinner.

Some days are better spent observing the world with your own eyes, rather than through the lens of a camera. So after taking just a few photos, I ditched my camera in my backpack to go play. Everyone was so exhausted at the end of the day but I wish we could go back again.
