I was sitting in the doctor’s waiting room and picked up this month’s (September 2011) National Geographic issue. As I was flipping through the pages, a picture of smiling young African kids petting a baby elephant’s trunk caught my eye. Knowing I had plenty of time to wait (as doctors just love making their patients wait) I decided to read the article titled: “Orphans No More”.
“Orphans No More”, one of Nat Geo’s September 2011 feature articles, had the effect to make both my eyes water and my lips curl into a smile. I won’t do it justice by explaining it so if you can’t pick up the magazine, which I highly recommend you do, then here is the next best thing.
