What heartbreaking pictures. Did you notice that the Asian children are all boys and all of them are wearing pink socks? Some of them are wearing the same kind of sweat pants and shirt. I wonder what that photo is all about.

You know, that detail hadn't even registered with me. It takes a woman's eye to spot these things.

No, you know I scrutinized the picture because it was Asian kids. So adorable. You know I'm prejudiced, but I think Asian kids are the cutest in the world. I have such a good time at Chinese school watching the little brothers and sisters of the students.

I've been to a few orphanages in China for my volunteer work and the children in the photo reminded me of the kids in orphanages. Granted I saw kids in cities where there is more money for social welfare programs, but the kids I saw got a fair amount of love and attention from the caregivers. But they get by with very little. I'
believe that the orphanages in the rural parts of China are very poor and sad.
