New Day Kids - Then and Now

Can you believe May marked 5 years that the first kids came to New Day Orphanage??? I don't always feel like time has flown around here, but when I look at their faces, I must admit it has! Here is a glimpse of our New Day Kids - from the first day of their arrival to today. The pictures are in order of their arrival at New Day!

Sisi - age 14

Muchoni - age 11

Misheck - age 10

Ben - age 11

Kelitah - age 11

Axer - age 8

Francis - age 11

Cynthia - age 13

Phillip - age 9

Christina - age 7

Joseph - age 9

Gertrude - age 8

Mweene - age 9

I have to say something about Mweene - he is the NEATEST kid, but he does NOT like to smile! He is witty and super smart, but hates the camera. :)

Kefbert - age 7

Glory - age 9

Malilwe - age 8

I promise she is a happy child, but she was in her "supermodel pose"! :)

Prince - age 5

Lulu - age 7

Terry - age 4

Emma - age 2

Justin - age 2

Luumuno - age 5

And Luumuno did NOT appreciate being woken up from his nap to take these pictures!

Agness - age 5

Stanley - age 3

Emmanuel - age 4
