Yesterday was the day that we went to the Home of the Sick & Dying Babies. I loved how many of the children were full of joy when we came to visit. Most of the children were playing when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a sad little boy sitting on the ground holding an orange balloon. I ran over to include him with the group of other little boys when he gave me this face that said, "I'm sad and in need of love." I hugged him, held him, tickled him, and silly-faced him, but received nothing in return ... not even a smile. I started crying and I wondered where he had been, what had happened to him, where his family was, and why wasn't he smiling??
