FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Yesterday, 13 new children started at the Dien Ban Day Center, all of them with severe behavioral, intellectual or sensory disorders. The expected first week of mayhem and tears lasted just one day, and today, the children are calm and settled and getting used to their new routine. This service is a lifeline for the many parents who have nowhere else to turn to. Please support us by sponsoring one of these children, or even better, sponsoring one of our truly amazing staff. This week they have amazed even me.970700_10151755858599431_610616454_n-2
