Newing the Old

So I went and met the kids today, after a semester-long hiatus. The orphanage has acquired 9 more kids since I returned to Berkeley, mostly during the “adoption ceremony” they have at the end of January. The kids filed in a little disoriented with sleep as they came to meet me…and the orphanage veterans immediately recognized me, yelling out “दीदी दीदी!” on seeing me.
