The experience un Shephars House is just something amazing. You have to you get used to the real African lifestyle, to start enjoying , realising that the most of the things that we have we don't need it to be happy. The love and kindness of this kids is just something unbeliavle, they will stay in your hearts forever. All you can teach them is less compared to what they teach you. The worst part is the last day , it is imposible don't cry seeing their faces and knowing that your home is very far and it is dificult to see them again.
Hope we see us again.
