OH MY GOSH!!!! I KNOW THOSE CHILDREN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE VIDEO!!!!

I'm not joking. I met them when I was in Ethiopia. They were positively amazing and such beautiful, beautiful children.

The HIV+ girl stood next to me. The little girl on the right in the photo of the three little girls was the girl my husband pined for when we left Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is really a place that I will never forget. Children with no food...trying to feed ME. How beautiful is that?

My husband and I went to see our sponsored child and we spoke to the people who ran the guest house we stayed at (Ethiopia Guest Home) and he suggested that we go to Peter's Drop-In Center. And it was there. We played with them all day...

It's this place:

The kids at Peter's drop in center were the most snuggliest, huggiest, kissiest kids ever!!!

The video should come with a disclaimer that the pictures don't all align perfectly with the words...most do, but not the girl on the HIV+ slide. She was not the actual girl who was HIV+ ...I didn't want to post her picture...ya know? ..but now it looks like this girl is HIV positive - I'm not sure which is worse/better.

Anyway, I'm grateful that Russ took a simple blog post and made it so meaningful.

I can't wait to go back in October to get more sticky kisses!
