We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

"What Does a Orphanage Look Like?"

My very empathic son wanted to know what the orphanage in Rwanda looked like. I did my best to explain what I have read but pictures really describe it a whole lot better. So I searched and found another video with what appear to be several pictures of the Home of Hope Orphanage run by the Sisters of Calcutta (different then the Home of Hope Orphanages with locations throughout the world and funded out of Canada). Based on what I have seen from other sources I believe that the pictures with the blue cribs, tables, and walls are from the Home of Hope Orphanage where are children are waiting. Hard for me to watch right now.

  1. Hi Kari!
    I would concur that some of the pictures very well could be from Home of Hope, like you had said, anything with blue cribs or walls. Everything there is blue. The pictures with grass or older children in it wouldn't be from Home of Hope as they don't have any grassy areas, or school age children living there. I think some of the pictures where kids are standing against red brick walls could also be HOH, but then again, everywhere in Rwanda uses red bricks.:) I'm surprised there are pictures you can find on the internet. They don't generally allow any photos or video to be taken inside the orphanage.
    Praying for you and your family, all those who are with you and those who aren't!
