Experience DRC Congo

This is the best video footage we have seen that shows life in the Congo and the children there.
If you're in the process of adopting from the DRC and wanting to know what it will be like when you go... this is a good visual description, but it certainly doesn't consist of everything you will likely encounter.

Horns blow all the time. They have very few road rules, and what rules they do have are simply... crazy.
You will find kind people, and people who are less than friendly,  but study your history of this country and you will know why.  You cannot view this country with an american lens... if you do you'll be nothing but shocked, confused and overwhelmed. If you look for the beauty in any place you will find it. And there is a lot of beauty in Congo. It is a stark contrast to the ugly... but it's there. Look for it.
