Toward the end of my time in Romania, I spent one exhausting day surrounded by ten year old boys from three different orphanages... fourteen 10 year old boys!
While their aches and pains are real- the consequences of abandonment, hurt, and even abuse- these little boys couldn't help but bring a smile to everyone's face.
I've come to believe that most ten year old boys have some similar characteristics...
For instance, ten year old boys love to climb trees:
They take games very seriously:
They run with abandon:
And they will stop everything to wrestle:
Ten year old boys love gadgets:
They can be serious when they need to be:
But they never miss an opportunity to clown around:
Ten year old boys- no matter what country they live in, what language they speak, or what clothes they wear, all love super heroes:
Enjoy the ten year old boys in your life- and remember to say a little prayer for some of these ten year old boys growing up in orphanages in Romania!
