The marvelous kids of Uganda

It's hard to explain to someone who hasn't been there to understand what wonderful kids there are in the orphanages of Uganda. Despite the harsh lives they've had, they are polite, happy, and eminently decent children.

The picture below is what some kids, without consulting the house parents, produced toward the end of my visit. All I did was provide some medicine, fund a few small projects, and counsel a few of the older kids. Their spelling of my name is a bit off, but that's the tiniest of details that adds charm to it all. What can one say?
