Today our HOPE Art team went back to Nadine's Orphanage, down the street from our hotel. We got permission to work with the kids in our own courtyard, so we brought them back to make some art in a nice, cool location. I showed them how to pull threads from swatches of burlap and sew colorful thread back in. With our music box playing in the background, breezes flowing and a healthy snack in their belly, I think we gave these sweet kids a break from their dark and crowded lives. Actually, I know we did because at least a couple were really sad when they had to go home.
