La Ciudad de Ninos, The City of Children.
It's an orphanage in Mexico,
Full of love, joy and hope.
Everyone is welcome there.

The city smiles as we arrive,
The children are excited to see their friends again.
God blesses us with this opportunity,
To change their lives, as well as our own.

We spend days with the children,
Though it feels like it was only minutes.
We play with them daily and
We teach them about Dios.

Nubia, Yoselinne, Kimberly, Yesenia--
There's too many to name.
Each person has children who are changing them,
Children that are touching our hearts.

It is the end of the week,
And it is time to go home.
Our hearts are broken,
Knowing it'll be a year till we meet again.

But we know we will be with them
In heart, just as Dios is.
After going, we all know we'll never forget
La Ciudad de Ninos, The City of Children.
