I can’t even express what I’m feeling right now. I just look at these beautiful children and weep for joy…and with sadness for what they’ve been through.
All of these children were slaves not even three months ago. But because we’ve been able to buy their freedom. they are now free!
This is a follow-up post to “What can you buy for $200?” that I posted last November. Continue reading
