Goodbye, Barlad

It was our last day of working with the children. Gabi and Alexandra left in the morning. Gabi will apparently be going to a foster family and Alexandra was going back to the placement center. 

As the afternoon drew to a close, we said our goodbyes to the children who have made such a special impression on my heart. It was very meaningful to receive big hugs and kisses from the staff as we were leaving. It has been a great two weeks that, as usual, makes a deep impression on my life. The dear children and the staff are in my thoughts and prayers. It is at this time that I tell myself that quote attributed to Dr. Seuss, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”  Goodbye, Barlad.
