One big thing you need to know about the orphanage is that not all the kids are true orphans here. Actually, only two (Jyoti and baby Tabitha) are orphans. The others are here because their families can't take care of them or they have been abandoned, abused, and/or neglected.
Yesterday, the parents of 4 children came to Asha for their kids. Suman and Shivam are brother and sister. Their father was sick and blind, but his recent surgery restored his sight. Maybe he felt that he could take care of them now. Anyway, they are gone now. Please pray for them--for their adjustment and well being. Pray that they won't be abused or neglected; that they will be safe and okay.
Flora and Sweety are gone as well. I love all the children equally, but have spent a lot of time with Sweety this past week. I'm not looking forward to returning to the orphanage tomorrow and not seeing her (or the other three children).
Sweety and Suman:
Sweety is the child on the Sixty1 Website header, the one looking in the window.
