After over 20 years of living where I do, I only recently found out that there is an orphanage nearby (sandwiched in between motels, at that). I went with a couple of officemates and I stayed for about 2 hours. I thought I was only going to stay for less than an hour, but I felt compelled to carry all of the babies one by one. They were just too cute! I was particularly attached to a baby boy named, Samuel, who smiled the minute I entered the room. Awww... He even took the baby bottle out of his mouth to smile at his visitors. So he's a little bit on the "pango" side, but I carried him longer than I did all the other babies. I hope they all get adopted.
I've been such a sickly girl. I've had a sore throat for over a week now. Good thing my normal voice is starting to come back. I practically lost my voice on Wednesday. People could hardly hear me in a crowded room. And until now I can't sing along to my favorite tunes properly. Boohoo.
