Brushing up for school

There is nothing better than school. He waited ... and waited. Now he can speak, eat and do other things what children normally do.

He really appreciates the clothes and things he has. Every morning he cleans his shoes before going to school.

We are helping children in Ukraine.

It all started when my husband and I saw wild dogs taking care of the street children.

A question came: "Does these dogs care more for the children, than people do?"
We moved to Ukraine, opened a "Friend's House" - a house with open doors for children, help children in need, underage mothers ...

Photo is a powerful instrument to tell the story. I want to learn more about photo with, looking your photos, learning and I value your honest feedback on my images.

With love to God and the children!

All children have to do the same when they leave home to school! Cleaned, hands, face, shoes ... are so restless that you always have to fix something! A child with a beautiful face! Good composition! Best regards Adela
