A BIG Thank You!

A BIG Thank You!

Well yesterday was a another interesting day here in Poland, one of which I will not forget soon!

As you know I am a HUGE supporter for the orphanages here where I live.  Well yesterday they hosted a little event for a few people who have volunteered their time either fundraising or working with the children.

The coordinator of one of the orphanages all she told me about the event was to dress nice, no jeans(she know I love to wear them!).

We had a GREAT time!  The older kids treated us to a play about Bydgoszcz(resembled Little Mermaid a bit), then we heard a quick speech from the main orphanage director and from the city vice-president(they don’t have mayors here), then we were presented with letters of appreciation from the city President.   AND of course there was food!

Here is where the event was. This is one of the orphanages in town.

Some of the sweets we were given.

They start us off with a play. Here are the sea fairies and the sea king.

Date night!

Prince Charming arrives!

And they lived happily ever after!

They got the audience dancing.

These kids did a GREAT job!

My AMAZING friend and I enjoying a great afternoon together.

My letter of appreciation.

It was a great to be around others who are trying to make a difference in these kids lives not just with words but also with their actions.

My husband and I were talking last night about our English class we teach at the orphanage and we are not sure who is getting more of a blessing from those classes, the kids or us? It is a wonderful feeling something so small to us means so much to those kids!

Do you do volunteer work?  What is your favorite thing to do?  Mine, while living here in Poland is helping at orphanage!!

love kelley

    Love reading your blog!! We live in South Africa. My husband is Polish. I would love to adopt a Polish orphan as we can’t have children of our own.
    Please would you mail me contact details if you can :

    Thanks so much & take care,

    • Daniela,

      I am glad you are enjoying my blog! Now as for adoption here in Poland. To be honest I am not much help, as I getting familiar the way the USA works for adoption here and I have been dealing with an US agency. Your best bet would be to look up the South African Embassy page here in Poland and they should hopefully have some information there for you. I also so do not have any information to what children are available here from the orphanage I work with as I am not able to release who is and who is not up for adoption, sorry!!

    Hey there, I was adopted from Poland & I’m trying to figure out exactly where I am from. I’d love if you could email me at malinaak@yahoo.com I’d really appreciate it! Seems like you have some knowledge in everything Poland & quite frankly, I have none.

    Thank you so much!

    • Malina,

      I am having issues try to sign on my email. So if you can please email me at kkagele@gmail.com with what kind of information you are looking for and I can see what I can do for you. I may know some stuff about Poland but if I don’t know it I know enough people now that I can work my mojo for you!
