While in Dorohoi, we had the opportunity to take 4 of the children shopping. Three of the kids are siblings and this is the second year, a family in the US has sponsored them.  They got boots/shoes, socks, underwear, pjs, gym suit, uniform for school, hygiene items, snacks, and even a big bag of candy to share with their apartment. The little girl was even able to get a new doll!

The other boy, is a sweety that was just loved by someone who was in camp a couple of years ago.  This special boy got boots, clothes, and even had some money left over to get a remote control car.

All of the kids were so happy to be spoiled for an afternoon. Thank you to those who sponsored these children.

In October while visiting the folks in Dorohoi, it was let known to us, that if anyone wanted to give all the children and teens in the orphanage a little gift, that the they needed socks.  What they didn’t know was the three weeks before we knew the need, one of my mom’s coworkers gave her $100 to “buy the kids some socks.”  We didn’t who the socks were for, but God already that the kids at the orphanage in mind.  I love how God provided for a need before we even knew we needed it.

In November, while my parents were here, we were able to give socks to the teens who are in a “Good Life Choices” study.  We also visited some little girls in one of the apartments, and gave them socks too!  The teens each got a pair of warmer socks and the kids got a pair of warm socks and a pair of summer socks.  We were able to buy a pair of warm socks for the 118 children and teens and about 39 summer pairs for the children. The staff later passed out the socks to the children along with apple sauce and some clothes we were given for the children.
