Letters from Rachel
The following is an excerpt from an update that Rachel Ward, America World’s Social Worker, who recently moved to Ethiopia, sent to Duni Zenaye, AWAA’s Africa Program Director:
“Last Friday we picked up 6 new children from the orphanage; 3 little babies and 3 girls between the ages of 4 and 6. We now have 17 children total! It’s definitely fun to have a full house and our current children were happy to get more children to play with! (thank goodness for earplugs…they start playing EARLY!) It has been very cool to watch the children adjust to us…initially many of them were scared by our white faces kissing on theirs! If we don’t serve any other purpose around here, at least we can help them become accustomed to what they will be seeing a lot of once they are in America!”
