In this solo episode, I’m going to fill you in on a new development in our plans for India.
I’ll tell you about the shock of discovering that the orphanage where my daughter spent the first 5 years of her life- was closed down because of their involvement in a trafficking ring. We were so hoping to visit Davey’s old stompin’ grounds…. but won’t be able to now. (just fyi- the children’s home we’re working with this summer is in a different region & very much on the up & up.)
I ask if you feel a burning desire to do something about this multi billion dollar industry called “human trafficking” like I do. The thought of my Davey being so close to danger like this makes me shudder. Can you imagine one of your precious kids being sold?? My brain has trouble even comprehending how someone could ever run an operation like this involving little children.
This is why I’m so thankful for the timing of my next guest- Stacy Elliot will be coming in next week. She works with a group called EndslaveryTN and she will help us understand the motives of a “john” like Davey’s orphanage director and maybe have compassion on people like this even.
Even though we won’t be able to be reunited with any of Davey’s old orphanage staff or residents, we are looking forward to bringing tidings of joy and love to the one in Maharashtra.
The team there is telling us they’re good on clothes; but they need small games. If you’d like to send a set of cards or some coloring books to the children in this home, we’re now collecting small gifts to take to India with us, Partner with us at heylovepodcast.com.
