Wonderful Cards

Greetings and Flying Kisses

Girls sleeping with their postcards

Visitors to the scenic town of Sisters, where World’s Children is located, probably had trouble finding postcards lately. That was because three local women sent postcards with personal messages to children in another five orphanages. The 260 postcards depict scenes from Central Oregon, including downtown Sisters and the nearby Three Sisters mountains. One orphanage administrator wrote that the postcards the girls received are so special to them that they kept the cards under their pillows at night.

“Happy New Year from all of us from Sneha Sadan Orphanage! Wonderful…wonderful…wonderful… We all received the greeting cards and we do not know how to thank you for your love for us. You have spent a lot of time writing to each of us separately beautiful cards and explanation. Though you are across the miles how interested you are in us and though you not seen us you had that love for us to send us this greetings. We send our flying kisses and lot of loving greetings.” –Your loving children at Sneha Sadan
