Today our group was back with some of our favorite kids we've met so far, those at Nadine's Orphanage in Port-au-Prince. The amazing woman who runs this home for girls is dedicated to raising and educating all 30 of them to eventually get college scholarships in other countries, and then hopefully return to help Haiti. They all made friendship bracelets with Jenni, and I showed them how to paint a fish, or "poisson" in watercolor. It was a really great day hosting them again in our hotel's front courtyard. The girls were thrilled when they heard we'd be back tomorrow for more art.
