Description: Deep in the snow-covered Himalayan Mountains of India lies Kullu, the valley of the gods. At the House of Grace, orphans come from various mountain villages in search of hope. Hope to escape the extreme impoverished conditions of India. Hope for an education. Hope to grow-up strong. A safe haven, three decades in the making, allows for a life that begins at normal but quickly becomes free, inspired, and enchanting. Godly love creates a bond among these people that fosters a humble stance and an artistic depth.  Poems written by the children represent the hardships of being an orphan, the desire to break out of that mold, and the hope Christ has given them for a bright future.
