Hello!
I just wanted to update all of you on the changes in my placement that will be happening soon.  My placement at SOS has not exactly been working out very well.  The children there have awesome facilities and activities available to them so they don't have that much need for me, or sometimes time.  I felt like I wanted to spend my time here somewhere where they really needed me.  Because during my time there I felt so useless and almost like I was annoying the kids.
Anyway I am really excited about my new plans and I am still happy I went to SOS for a little while at least.Starting Tuesday I will be working at a government run orphanage.  They have around 50 children, 15 of which are infants.  They need lots of help there and I am really excited to spend time with the babies.  One of my friends here has been working there for the past two weeks and so I know what to expect.  I will, however, only be able to work there for 2 weeks because their are already other volunteers assigned there for the remaining 2 months.  So for the last 2 months I will be working at the community center in Bliss.  I will help with tutorials, activities, feedings, and any other things they do for the children.  I feel these changes are going to make my trip perfect.  I love the staff and children in my community and I am really glad I will be able to spend so much time helping them.

I'm VERY glad you spoke up & said something so you could feel useful! If that darn Duke would stop spending my money I would love to sponsor somebody- are you sending the blog link to Aunt Jan? She'd mentioned at Christmas that she was looking to have more contact than just send $$ someplace -wanted a more personal approach.

Re: way to go
I am not sure if she is in it. I don't think I have her email. If you don't mind sending her the link to my blog I would love that. I would love to help her sponsor a child here. Or donate money of some sort.
