The earthquake meant they received many more children.
Melissa Friesen, who has volunteered there for the last year, gave a tour." (BBC)

Hopeful parents - a cartoon
"An old Gary Larson Far Side cartoon showed a child playing a Nintendo
with 'hopeful parents' in the background
imagining help wanted ads in the year 2005:
''Nintendo Expert Needed. $50,000 salary + bonus"
or ''Can You Save The Princess?
We need skilled men and women, $75,000 + Retirement.'
"The cartoonist's message is obvious:
Nintendo prepares our children to go nowhere in the real world...
"Video games did not change the fact that my son is responsible, thoughtful and worthy.
If he was so attracted to the game,
my thought was that there could be something positive to that attraction.
Today in 2010, degrees and careers in gaming and
game development - both in programming and design - are in high demand
for the exponential growth of this multibillion-dollar industry.
The hopeful parents in the Far Side cartoon were heralds of the future!"
