Since Christine visited the Hadassah Orphanage, I sent her an e-mail asking, do you remember Jayaraju? She said yes, "He's an amazing artist. And a gentle spirit!" Kirby saw our sponsored orphan on a recent trip to India and told me, "He is doing really well. You can tell he looks after the younger children and seems wise beyond his years." Kirby sent me an updated photo of Jayaraju, and oh my - he is growing up, still handsome. In the green & white shirt, top-right:

It makes me happy to know that until Johnny and I get there, friends of ours have met Jayaraju and speak so well of his character. Of course, when I finally meet him, he will be taller than me. But who isn't taller than me?
I believe we need to add another Hadassah orphan to our brood, too.... And children from other countries. How could we not?
