I have to hide faces of both the kids and the workers because this children’s home is a shelter for kids from abusive families. There have been threats made against the staff and the kids here 😥. I call this place an orphanage because some of the kids have lived here for years and there no plans for them to be reunited with their families. I’m at a loss for how to write about my thoughts and feelings from this trip. I always left the orphanages in China with a lot of hope but hearing some of these stories from Budapest made me really sad. I think the staff here are some of the best I’ve worked with but kids are not meant to grow up in a shelter. Most orphans in the world have parents who are still alive. In China, kids are abandoned at birth with no way of contacting their parents. Here in Budapest, they have information about these kids’ families but reuniting them can often be dangerous. I’m praying through how I can best serve these kids going forward. Please 🙏 with me.
