Hi, everyone. Really fast thing update. We are hosting a boy from the Philippines for a month. His name is Julius. He is 12 years old. This is a picture after he arrived and all the boys went out and got haircuts at my fancy-pants salon. He is from an orphanage in Manila. At the end of November he will be going home. He is part of a group of 18 kids that are doing the same thing he is in something called the “Welcome Home” program being run by International Christian Adoptions out of Temecula (south of Irvine).
We are really excited to have him here. He is exhausted from the travel, but being a trooper. Very quiet and reserved so far. His main language is Tagalog, but he understands (and can read) quite a bit of English.
