November is children’s month here in the Philippines with many events to celebrate these amazing little people. Last Friday morning the seven day-care centers in our community came together for a light-hearted contest in dancing, singing, reciting and drawing. It was a delight to see three and four year-olds try their best to impress the judges and some of them were very talented. Two children from Angel House joined in the fun and did very well. Angel House also gives financial support to these seven day-care centers as part of our community outreach program. PHOTOS: Our little boy in the drawing competition.

On Sunday our nine oldest kids were very excited as we made the long journey to Davao city to join many other charities for a fun event organized by the office of the President and the DSWD. There were more than six hundred children there and it was amazing to see so many centers like Angel House coming together to have an early Christmas party. Our kids enjoyed watching the clown, magician, Jollibee and Bumblebee the transformer entertain them, as well as jumping on the inflatables and eating lots of Jollibee and snacks. Upon reflection, it is also very sad that so many kids need our help and are the innocent victims of their circumstances, but at least everyone had a great day out.
