En route to Hawaii, we stopped in Japan and the head monk of Cambodia,
the Venerable Thep Vong, was there en route to
somewhere in a delegation, and he blessed the baby, blowing on
her head, because he felt she was so fragile whe would not survive
– if he could see her now!
Laura Smith came to Cambodia in 1990 as a high
school student and now has her own foundation, Global

This little boy looked so sad when I saw him in the orphanage
in January 1990 the first time. Now he’s “Hing Daniel”
and living in a great family. His parents came to Cambodia to
pick him up in 1990 – he was in the second 5 of the first
10 kids adopted... They helped Daniel carry 5 kids to Laos and
Surrounded by LOVE!
Hing Daniel, look at him now! growing up on Whidbey Island,
Washington, a baseball and soccer star, in college studying
international diplomacy and political science, turning 21 in May 2007.
He returned to Cambodia 8 years ago when his parents adopted 2 Khmer
sisters. They are close to Alexa,also shown here, an aspiring model.
