OP, strictly my opinion. Since they grew up with the other kids, they see them as their extended family. No worry about papa and mama.......
To them making decision, the SOS only guild them and allows them to integrate into the society by watching their back.

I don't know.

Are you in an orphanage? Have you been adopted? It appears you worry about your future. Anyway, kindly remain there as the street is dull.

Well, for those that were lucky to be adopted, things might turn out good, for thos who are not, I think the orphanage sends them to school, not sure but I guess when they get to a certain age, they would begin to fend for themselves, everytin is all about determination and the grace of God, if they are determined to make it, they can hustle and make something of their life, tho it won't be easy, having no immediate family to assist and support them

statistically kids with quite dysfunctional and trumatic childhood/teen hood have more tendency to become a productive adult, they would strive, nature always finds a way.....
Most kids from good home and upbringing ends up wasted!
So dis kids(orphans) works so hard so their seed doesn't go 2ru d same hardship... Dat why our parents gives us d best, so we will be beta off......
But finally I think Grace and destiny plays a big role in all of it.

I know of one in my school, she won a beauty pageant last year or so and is a student.

It's a lot like coming from a family cuz her pet project involved the orphanage she grew up in. They go out into the society and make something of themselves, some, probably marry each other

One thing i love bout God is..

He wll never allow those "kids turn adults" to b cheated..

Some are adopted based on
>Gender
>Looks(kinda look-alike with d adopter)
>Brilliant/sharp ( they v ideas bout things when you converse with them)
>Talented
# )
Some are just picked randomely by adopter to sponsor them..#

10% of them end up hitting it big..(Real big i mean) Their hustling spirit is "Strong"just a nairalander said"Its them against the world)
"Alone with my thoughts" This quote is for them
:-(
They v d greatest pain(No love-no one to look up to)No relative,nothing..)

Imaqine living for 20 years without having a memorable thing to think of except "no Love/care"..

They move on with life na...
My friend in secondary school was an orphan under SOS, Lagos. She had a sponsor, a family that took care of her lil expenses, she also learnt some skills, proceeded to Laspotech.

She is married now.

Lots of them know it's them against the world. So, they intrinsically have this hustling spirit. Their survival mode is high, worry about yourself... those orphans can do lots of things we can't do.

D only tym pple tink abt orphans is wen de want cheap publicity, giving indomie n soap to d orphans, very few individuals tink of providing scholarships for dem.

N even d orphanages don't do enough awareness to give des kids out to foster parents hence d children factories ar boomin, des churches ar also makin d children look like demons.

Anyway, I had a friend hu was an orphan as a kiid, he was given to foster parents, but his foster parents died soon he was labelled a witch, I ran into him sum weeks bak he is a sales man.

Ummm..nothing happens to them. They grow into the society and live their lives. After all, they have one of the biggest familial network ; tho not related by blood. They might even fare better than people with the so called family n kinsmen who don't give a damn about u
