Two twelve hour days down and one more to go. The book looks really good. And I am feeling really good about doing this work, especially in light of the email I received this morning from Joan at the orphanage:
Thanks for working so hard. There really is such a difference in the children because of Change The Truth. They are looking so healthy, beautiful and strong, all with smiles on their faces. Thanks for changing the truth (past) in these children's lives. Please never stop coming to SMK.”
That’s enough to make one hop out of bed and put in another long day at the print shop, isn’t it?
The kids are ever on my mind now, as I am constantly looking at their faces and studying the colors in their drawings on each proof page that rolls off the printing press. If only they were here to see this happening; I am pretty sure it would send them dancing down the hallway at Meridian, their warm smiles heating up the place.
The printing will be finished later this afternoon. The forms will be shipped off to the bindery in Boston, then the bound books will be sent to Kansas City in a couple of weeks.
I’ve been going through images from the most recent trip to the orphanage and will share some of those that kind of slipped through the cracks of my original edits with you now.
