I was pondering recently what it would feel like to be a Mum to a lot of Children in an Orphanage in another Country, so knowing Alissa has many Children in her care in her Sunshine Home in Nepal. I asked her would she mind sharing with us how she feels about the ups and downs of caring for her Children.
Anne asked as we enjoyed our lunch together last month, what it was like being a Mother to my Children in Nepal and did I have feelings like other Mothers do. This was an interesting and personal inquiry which nobody had sought before.
Without hesitation I’d have to say that I have a special bond with them all and one I know will be lifelong. When Children have been brought to the Home I always make it a time when I am there so I can give them my undivided attention and often they are traumatised so we begin a close relationship from here on. From this special moment I watch them flourish into happy and healthy little people with hearts and souls they are just like my own Children.
To strengthen this bond we Skype every few days while I’m in Australia raising support for them and I learn how they are coping at home with the other Children and at School.
Since they have moved back to their original School which now has a Christian Principle, having been victimised at the other School because of being judged as lower class by Teachers, who abused them verbally, pulling their hair, the sides of their faces and tugging their ears, they now are happier and more contented than ever.
Today the Children were exuberant on Skype, excitedly telling me their academic results from their last exams. Once again, they scored a consistent 90% to 100%! Good on them for trying so hard, considering many could barely write just two years ago.
Also, today was a Special day, it was Dipa’s my eldest girl’s birthday and she too, like Nanu in May, received one of the most beautiful dolls from Granny Annie. She turned 11years and the little darling had a smile from ear to ear as she proudly showed me the doll put very carefully back in the box. And the other reason for Dipa’s joy was that she scored 97% for her exams.
Tell the world, I’m the most happiest, proudest Mother that could ever be and words can’t describe how much I love my Children in Nepal.
