Tonight I had dinner with my friend Father Kevin Conroy, who works with the Maryknoll priests in Cambodia. He loves helping out with the Little Sprouts, the children orphaned by parents who died from AIDS.
All of these kids are HIV positive or have AIDS. Kevin told me there are about 200 orphanages in Phnom Penh. How sad.
Kevin is in Cleveland to celebrate the wedding of a family member and to celebrate his dad's 80th birthday. He said when the kids found out he was leaving for 9 days, they held a raffle to see who would get to ride to the airport with him to say goodbye. Such small joys.
