This is another incredibly late post, but I wanted to share some pictures from the anniversary of Lestari Sayang Anak in Cipete. Five years ago, Ingrid and her husbands dream to open an orphanage to improve the life of abandoned babies and toddlers, who cannot be taken care of by their biological families, came to fruition. It was originally set up to look after baby boys but now has a little girl also, as well as Ingrid’s two gorgeous adopted daughters.
I love the energy every time I have had the pleasure to visit them, as the kids get along so well and are so loving and kind towards eachother. It must be so much fun to grow up surrounded by so many best friends and adoring helpers. It is such a loving family environment and since their move to the new location, the kids have so much room to play in and so much equipment to keep them energised and playing.
Their anniversary party was attended by many visitors who had fun playing with the kids, watching a little performance, speeches and a raffle with some gorgeous prizes. There were toy donations and happiness all around and I want to congratulate Ingrid on all her hard work and for all the love that she has for these beautiful children.
Today they will receive a new baby in the orphanage and I know it will be showered with love and affection from all it’s new siblings and I can’t wait to visit and meet the newest addition.
If you would like to visit Ingrid and the children or to make a donation, they would be so happy to hear from you. You can contact them through https://www.facebook.com/lestarisayanganak
