Faces of the Abandoned

Faces of the Abandoned, an article from Newsweek:

The first time I met Jun Jun, she was quieter than the other children. The reason? She'd been separated from her foster parents and returned to a children's home to ready herself for permanent adoption. At first, she padded around in her puffy purple dress, eyebrows arched as she cautiously watched other kids play before jumping in. But she soon warmed up. Revving back a few paces, she sprinted into my arms. I tossed her up and down amid happy squeals of "yah yah yah yah!" She played with a boldness that often left her on her head or flat on her face. The caretakers practiced lunging as they reached to catch her.

That's sad.

That's quite heart-wrenching. Sometimes I wish that the world was perfect and every little boy and girl could be adopted.

But, the world is not perfect. But, we do what we can with what we have.

Deserted kids from china who are still in search of a proper caretaker ought to be blessed with a good parent who can fetch the kid with lots of love and care.I pray the day come when all such suffers finds a home again.
