El Porvenir, Honduras

To follow up on my last entry I have to sadly admit to a little problem we’ve encountered...

Two of the volunteers have had things stolen at the orphanage recently (presumably by the same boy- who is particularly charming and lovable). Both items have been returned but that’s not what concerns me, what gets to me is wondering about the lives that these kids have already had and the lives that they will have from here. I can’t stand the thought that these children who are so full of promise might not end up happy, healthy and safe. I’m so glad that the organization is here for them and that they at least have a fighting chance if they want to/ can be persuaded to take it.

Regarding this particular boy, I’m not sure what will happen to him. I know that he has had issues with theft and not sure what else... my naive hope is that it’s just a thing he’s going through and with the right guidance and attention he’ll take a different path.

I’m getting really attached. Not good.
