Well it has been a while since I have posted so the next few days I will try to catch up on all that has been going on since Christmas!! We always have a great time during the Christmas season with being able to go to the orphanages earlier in the day since the kids are not in school and are given more freedom since the kids have to school work to do. Also a fun thing is that Ukrainians love to celebrate, and we were invited to countless parties and concerts that the orphanages put on.
One fun thing that we were able to do with donated money was buy all the kids Christmas gifts! It was not much but the kids loved it. We were able to buy 2 pairs of socks and some candy for each kid. This does not sound like a lot but when you are buying for 400-450 kids people in the stores look at you strangely for having two buggies packed full of socks. They would just stare and some brave people asked us why we had so many and we were able to share with them who they were for.
