Little Princes by Conor Grennan....R&G!
An astonishing testament to true courage, the transformative power of love, and the ability of one man to make a real difference.
In search of adventure, twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan embarked on a yearlong journey around the globe, beginning with a three-month stint volunteering at an orphanage in civil war–torn Nepal. But a shocking truth would forever change his life: these rambunctious, resilient children were not orphans at all but had been taken from their families by child traffickers who falsely promised to keep them safe from war before abandoning them in the teeming chaos of Kathmandu. For Conor, what started as a footloose ramble became a dangerous, dedicated mission to unite youngsters he had grown to love with the parents they had been stolen from—a breathtaking adventure, as Conor risked everything in the treacherous Nepalese mountains to bring the children home.
I can't even fathom the pain and terror of living through what the Nepalese have. It is staggering and absolutley heartbreaking. I am not going to lie, it was tough to read about the heartache but the goodness of Conor Grennan made it possible. Imagine completely changing your life plan to help others. It is a wonderfully selfless thing to do and I felt honored to be taken along on the authors journey to reunite these families. This book is beautifully written and one I will hold close to my heart.
