A Visit to Orphanage

I had a chance to visit an orphanage in Koshla, India (near Manali) where I was deeply touched by the resilience of the young kids living over there. The kids seemed to be so happy and full of life despite so very few materialistic pleasures. There were also two westerners volunteering their time at this orphanage. When Nathalie visited the orphanage she was definitely the star attraction due to her bubbly and happy persona. She taught the kids many games and songs and everybody seemed to be touched by her at the end of the day.

When I visited this orphanage again after one week, all the kids asked me about where the crazy girl from Canada was ... the girl who taught them the Moose Song.

Moose Song: Nat teaching the kids "Moose Song"

Dancing: Kids being kids.

Nathalie teaching the kids some new game.
I had a hard time in grasping the rules of this game

Abstraction: Hands and Feet

Star Attraction "The Nathalie" : From Canada with Love

Making Space: Jolanda making some space for herself by dragging back one of the kids (no kids were hurt in the process)

Inner Circle: Nathalie seems to be telling a very interesting story.

Hello Teresa,
Adopting a baby from different country can be somewhat time consuming full of legal formalities as you will have to deal with the laws and policies of both the countries ... india as well as your home country. Please send me an email at desican@gmail.com and I will be happy to give you the phone number of the orphanage.
all the best
cheers ... Sarju
