Last Friday some of our girls graduates came to the teamhouse for a sleepover. After wonderful Lasagne and rather interesting looking popcorn balls, we had fun together plucking eyebrows, doing nails, getting new clothes from "The Pipera Store" playing bunco and watching a film. Great times!

As the weather changes here in Romania, it is time to bring out the warmer clothing and indeed shoes. In our last team, there was a young boy (himself adopted from Romania, although now living in America), who raised over $5000 to buy shoes for some of the orphans in Romania. This team and staff visited several orphanages we work in here in Bucharest and in other parts of Romania to deliver shoes to around 300 orphans. It was fun to see their reactions while trying on different styles. Thanks team and in particular Andrei!

It's that time of year again. Our programmes have started at the orphanages. This year we have added a band programme to our already exisiting music programme at one orphanage and have started a music programme at a second orphanage. It is so amazing to see the kids enthusiasm and progress and how seriously they have taken learning music so far. I cant wait to see how much they progress this year.
