- No single people can adopt
- Must be married at least 5 years
- No older than 45 years old
So even if I were to marry tomorrow, I still couldn't adopt from Korea. Boo Korea!
This is Kevin, the organizer. Please tell me who you think he looks like!
I immediately thought that he looked like Scott Hamilton. Am I right or what?
Kevin started off the shabang by having us get into a big circle to sing a funny song. With motions.
Then we organized into groups, one group going outside to play Frisbee and one group staying inside to play games. I chose inside since most of the volunteers went outside. We got to play with the little ones, which is just fine by me!
Chris had brought his Angry Bird UNO cards, but the kids didn't really know how to play since they were too young. So they proceeded to get cards, look at them, and then make funny faces.
Then I made up a game to throw the cards to see if they landed between a person's legs. That lasted about 5 minutes. Then they started running around the room with the cards.
This little dude was a ham. And he was a kicker and a hitter and a puncher. He hit Chris right in the face. Ouch!
Then they started running around the room yelling "POWER!" and doing fist pumps. They were so funny!
This little girl reminded me of my friend's little girl, Kylie. She had THE cutest smile and personality. If I could have taken her home, I totally would have.
Sadly, Korean's laws for adopting are pretty strict. You have to be married, and you have to have been married for at least 5 years. Oh, and you can't be more than 45 years old. Well....that leaves me out. Thanks Korea. Guess I won't be adopting from you.
Aaron came and began the the whole "pick me up and spin me around" thing. That was a big hit.
Running around the room....
Playing with Chris...
Playing the piano
Playing the drums
Oh my gosh. I want her!
Alicia with the littlest one
Our theme of the day was Mardi Gras. Alicia organized a mask activity. She brought construction paper, decorations, and even feathers. Oh, the feathers...
So we cute the feathers into smaller pieces. And look at what happened. Feathers. Were. Everywhere.
My sweet friend, Sarah, sent some gummy plastic bugs in a package a while back, and I thought the kids at the orphanage would love them. Boy, was I right!
My cousin, Kelly, sent some great big heart 3D heart stickers. The girls (and boys) loved them!
Showing off his frog. He LOVED LOVED LOVED these bugs. Just wait...you'll see more of him and his bugs.
Can I have her? PLEASE? I promise I'd be a good mom!
He LOVED his beads. Can you tell?
Showing off his rubber snake
Here he is again with his beads and his bugs.
I think those bugs and beads MADE his day. Thank you Kelly and Sarah!
We had a little parade for the kids to show off their masks, but many of them weren't quite sure what to do. It took a little or a lot of prodding.
These are my ears from Halloween that I brought.
Doesn't he look adorable in them?
Yep, he got even more beads.
She was such a pretty girl. Sweet too.
After playing and singing and mask-making, we all headed downstairs to the cafeteria for pancakes, tomatoes, bananas, bacon, and orange juice. Yum!
Pancakes and chopsticks? I chose to use a kiddie fork instead.
It was such a wonderful experience, and I was able to cross something off my Korean "bucket list". I totally plan on going again. And falling even more in love with some of them...
