I  was captivated by this film that we saw the other day at a workshop that was held by the government agency that oversees the different hogars in Guatemala. I was able to grasp just a little bit more as to why the children at the orphanage act the way they do. Sometimes their misbehavior is because of the turmoil that's inside of them. I did not see or experience what they have seen or experienced. My heart has been so overwhelmed, not knowing what to do. I don't know how to help. All I have been doing is praying and asking God to help me to love them through their actions and defiance.

I hope that this video can also help you the way it has helped me; to see the children here in the hogar a little differently and a bit more of compassion.
