More from Mampong Babies Home

I was at this orphanage for four days and fell in love with all these babies! Most of the kids are half-orphans. Their mothers' died and their fathers can't take care of them so they get shipped here until the age of 5. Some of them get taken from mothers who are mentally ill. It's really sad and most of them never get visited by their families. I sure loved my time with them though!

Absolutely beautiful pics. I love the colors and composition of the first. I love the eyes and face of the little one staring out her crib (one up from the bottom). Awesome job, Kel.
