India: One

Hello All! I'm back. It was an amazing trip. I have so many stories and images to share with you. India was nothing like I could have imagined, it was definitely an experience like no other.
I have lots to catch up on as I'm sure you can imagine, but I wanted to leave you with some of my favorite shots from my trips to the slums. We visited about 6 villages, where the orphanage gets most of their girls from.
One of the main reasons these girls end up at the orphange is because HIV and Leprosy are rampant in these communities and the majority of their parents have passed away or are so sick they can't provide for their families. I hope to share many more images and stories soon...and I can't wait to catch up on all your posts :)

I agree with the above commenter. Those are worthy of National Geographic! My heartstrings are strongly tugged by these images. I want to hug them all, help them all. I hope one day that I have the opportunity to help others in need...to go on mission trips.

Wow. Great pictures! You should think seriously about submitting some of those...I agree with the above, they are def Nat Geo worthy :)

One question though, what kind of response did they have to your camera? Were they okay with you taking pictures? I ask because it's something I often shy away from doing, but wish I didn't.
