Blog Post 8

Due to midwinter break vacation, I have not made much progress since my last post.  I still have some research that needs to be done on the background of the possible orphanages I could visit.  Since I was on a cruise over break, I did not have service at all so there was no way for me to do the research required in order for me to make my final decision.

As for the future of my project, I'm going to research these orphanages tomorrow and then when I finally make my decision, call and see what time I'd be able to visit.  As I get closer to making a date I'm becoming more excited and anxious to finally be able to hangout with these children.  I hope that I'm able to accomplish my goals and that the kids are willing to open up to me and will want to play and talk to me.

Blog Post 7

Since my last post, I have done some research on local orphanages, and I've run into some complication.  Most of the local orphanages are in very dangerous parts of Detroit, so I need to do more research before I can finally decide which one to visit.  I'm also going on a cruise next week over midwinter break, so I won't be able to visit over the upcoming break.  This week I'm going to do all the research about the orphanages to come to a conclusion about which one will be safest for me to visit.
I'm hoping that I will be able to visit two weeks from now.  My plan is to visit and play with children who don't have anyone to play with and connect with kids who feel like no one cares.  My hope is that if I visit enough I can really make an impact on their lives until they can be adopted.
